Electrical fan connector

Can somebody help find this? Can't find anything. Not even a part number.

Electrical fan connector for a manual

I'm pretty sure it's either part of the fan or part of the wiring harness (depending on which connector you're talking about), so you can't buy one separately. I know, it sucks.

Do the automatics have the same connector? I'm figuring I could snip one off from a junked one. At my local pick n pull they only have automatics though

I have snipped one off a junker, since when my mechanical fan blew up it took out the connector. On autos the connector plugs into the aux fan, on manuals it plugs into the radiator fan. When putting it on your car be careful, one of the wires are always hot even when the car is shut off.

Yes, autos have the same connector.

If you have an auto then unplug the aux fan and connect the electric engine fan to it. Then remove the aux fan.

Are you going from mechanical clutch fan to electric?
