Auxiliary fan or Cooling fan??? PLease Help!!!

I have a manual 325ci e46. the problem is that when it hot out a fan (i think the auxiliary fan) keeps running till the battery goes dead. Also when its warm out the A/C stops working, or comes on once in a while. i know it's the fan in between the engine and radiator because i have been unhooking this harness so my battery doesnt keep dyeing. All the research i have done sais that on my car the relays are built into the fan and i have to raplace the whole fan, but when i got to this site i got confused


im not sure if it's the "Cooling Fan Assembly with Shroud Located between radiator and engine" or the "Auxiliary Fan Assembly with Shroud Located in front of radiator"

has anyone else had this problem or know what fan i should replace?
