    Default Changing dual cooling fans

    Hi

    Just been looking at my radiator fans and the housing on one of them is all cracked and the fan is very stiff to move by hand, can the unit be replaced without having to take the radiator out. And when i get a used one will any work out of vectra c & signum

    Thanks

    Changed it tonight, haynes manual stated removing the radiator, but you can get it out with the radiator in place you just have to drop the radiator and gently ease forward i took the weight on a jack then wrangled the old fans out, then got the new ones in, it is a bit fidley but it can be done. Started the job about half 6 and was all back together by 8
