i need some help finding an electric radiator fan for my 2001 325xi sedan made 11/2000. manual tranny with auto ac controls. e46 ,m54.
There is only one fan on my car. And it is located on the back side of the radiator. So it sits between the radiator and the engine.
At realoem.com ,in the radiator section under " fan shroud "they show part number 17 11 7 561 757.
Under "cooling unit" the motor and shroud is part number 17 11 7 505 663.....or.... 17 11 7 505 661
The fan motor on my car which has blown two 50 am fuses . And had a lot of smoke curling out of it the last time .I can spin the fan manually .It is a Siemens motor
here are some numbers off of the motor itself. [6 909 896] A0.218.104.22.168] [162-65002-08] Siemens Canada.
I have seen some comments in places that say the motor may not be bad, it might be the controller. My motor plug has three wires. two large and one thin. And my motor and fan shroud does not have a silver or black controller mounted on it like i see on most fans i have been looking at. Is my controller built into the motor or do i not have one?
. And i wouldn't mind an aftermarket unit. I may not be keeping the car long and i don't want to spend 534.00 at the dealership.
THANKS...I see you are local. please give me a call at 763-551-1521 tim
