Default How many fans for the diesel?

how many different types of engine/air con cooling fan were fitted to the diesels?

Are two speed and 3 speed interchangeable?

Two and yes (diesel control box must be retained).

Now what's the actual problem Ian?

Hi Simon, no actual problem. I posted as I was going to the scrap yard today and was going to get a spare fan which I have now done with control box and a few other bits.

I think they are the same from another thread or something I've seen as the one from the scrap yard has the silver resister as does mine.

I could have wasted my money but fingers crossed I haven't.
Just wanted to know if I found one that is not the same if it would fit and work.


This leads me to another question. I have my saloon in bits so accessing the plug for the fan is easy, I'm unsure how to test this "new" fan, can you advise?
I dont want to run the air con as there is no gas in it.

You will need to plug it into your saloon and do the demist test. There's no harm in doing this because the diesel doesn't need the engine to be running for this test. Be sure to weigh down the fan very securely though otherwise it will become a helicopter.

Change the silver resistor for a gold one and your spare should last quite a while, you could always open it up and check the brushes, and if they need changing do so.
