I could probably reconfigure the viscous fan shroud, so that my electric fan fits inside, but i dont think that there would be room to get everything behind the radiator, where the viscous fan used to sit.
I wonder if I will have the same problem using the recommended fan. Has anyone used the OEM electric fan 17117561757 in an E46 330d coupe? does it fit?
if I cannot get an answer to that question, I guess the next best thing will be to know the depth of the replacement fan module.
cheers in advance.
