MG MGF Technical - Engine Bay Fan

Hi all,

Got a niggling problem with Envy which has been around since last year. I'm off to Switzerland in the car in August so I need to get it sorted.

Engine bay fan - normally it works away quite happily comes on when it's supposed to etc. Very occasionally I'll hear a loud whirring sound coming from the fan. I assume this is a bearing on it's way out or something similar. Does anyone know a rough price for a new fan? I've done a search on the net but can't find anything.

Cheers chaps,

Emma (& Green with Envy)

Emma,

My fan has made a terrible racket since the car was brand new. In fact you can feel the vibrations coming from it when it turns itself on. To be honest i think they are pretty cheap and nasty and they either work or they don't.

Emma,

save cash and get a second hand one.
Btw. we have a user in our German Forum who drove for about one year without that fan....
The car is still well.


Cheers

Makes me realise I can't remember when I last heard it start - perhaps it's failed! I know it seems to get quite hot in there as I'm trying to make progress installing a cool air inlet system. Measurements near the air filter housing can apparently get up to 50+ degC!!
