Default Radiator fan..

Hi all,
Got a 2005 260 and have been checking the fan..
Kicks in at 99 degrees but doesn't kick in when selecting windscreen demist? Aircon compressor not starting so assume it needs a regass but thought the fan should start?

Other question, as its 2005 thought it would have a resistor visible by the blades? Cant see anything ( admit I haven't yet removed the bumper)

The low speed fan should run even if the aircon has no gas.
This might help: https://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/for...ad.php?t=35567

The 2-speed fan system has the low speed resistor mounted on the fan guard. It's located in the 2 o'clock position behind the blades. You may have to turn the blades with a thin stick to get a clear view. In very rare cases, the resistor is reported to be out of sight to the rear RHS of the fan frame as you look at it.

Thanks for the reply, will pop the bumper off and investigate further, a few other little jobs I've found to do as well.
