Front fan shrouds... See above ::)
Sorry DG you are correct.The left hand one has come away from the rad at the top and that is what is making the noise.I have put some silicone adhesive on the top edge rubber,to fix it back to the rad.It seams ok for now no noise, but how are they normally fixed in place.Dean.BTW Thanks for the pic Terry.
FTLOG why ???

They clip into a rubber grommet on the slam panel. Simply push the top towards the number plate until it pops into place...
I am sorry DG but i don't follow or understand :-[ mate Dean.
The bit you glued to the radiator CLIPS to the metal panel that the bonnet latches to by way if a plastic ball and rubber grommet. Not sure that I can simplify it any further... :-\

But here goes...

Lower two pins sit on the lower cross member top single pin is the one that clips into the slam panel.
DG i think i have finally got it ;D,what confused me was the other shroud looks like it is attached to the rad.Because of the glue or whatever it is.I am going out to the car in the morning to see whats what.Dean.

Terry's pic doesn't show the shaped spring clip that attaches to the rectangular holes in the bracket and made the marks on the rubber block. The radiator assembly is a pretty tight fit, and the clips don't really do much. Gluing the rubber in place isn't something I would find necessary if the clips were missing.
I am sorry Nick but i don't even know where the clips are or if they are missing :-[ Dean.


Er, if your car looks like the picture then they're missing.
Sorry Nick,i don't follow.Dean.Whats missing.

Hi all,well after reading your posts and searching through the forum this is what i have learned.The part with the fans is the condenser rad not the coolant rad.(didn't even know my car had air con)There was a bolt missing that secures it to the main rad via a bracket,so it was vibrating i have put another bolt in it.I have had a look at the fans and the left one is fooked,wobbling about and catching the shroud surround.Also for some reason both fans are staying on for ages,well over 2min.So i now need to get a new fan and find out why they are staying on for so long,and work out how to fit it.I have sent a pm to a really nice guy who is a forum member,and lives near me.It looks like replacing the fan is a right bastid but we will see,now to try to find a replacement.Thanks for all your help advice and particularly your patents,will see how it goes Dean. :y

Hi all,looks like i am having a bit of trouble finding a fan Germany only.And when i search it says will not fit my car,there must be some in the uk.The part number is 90500025 and 90467915,do you think its worth putting an ad in parts wanted section.Dean.

Fans staying on for cooling purposes. Be more concerned if they never came on or never switched off.

Both front fans are the same. Four pots have one, V6s have two.

To swap them out, you need to pull the radiator... Remove the bagpipes and main fan. Lift it clear of the top brackets then hoik the whole lot towards the engine. Should then have space to pop the fans out. Unplug from the front.

Hi DG,so to be sure.I don't need to worry about the fans staying on.I will put a wanted ad in the appropriate section for a fan,someone must have one.So remove the bagpipes and the main fan,i thought the main fan was attached to the rad.Lift the main cooling rad clear of top brackets,move the whole lot towards the engine.How do i remove the condenser rad to put the new fan in,or does it lift out with the main rad.Will i be able to get to the connector to unplug it from the front.Sorry for all the questions,but i have never done anything like this.And i will be on my own with no one to ask if i am doing it right.Thanks again DG i appreciate it.Dean. :-[

If you're not sure, you really need to have someone else present to guide you through it. ;)
