Hi

 

I have a cooling fan which is not running although the motor is ok when tested. I have traced the fault to what I think is a relay screwed onto the fan housing. (pics attached)

This is apparently not available as a spare part only with the fan.

 

Can anyone tell me what the part is actually called, if it is standard across the range and if it's repairable

 

Thanks

 

Paul

might be better to ask on the smax forum itself,but be prepared they will only give info if you pay to become a full member there.as most of there info is locked.

can you call a few scrappies and see if you can pick one up from there?

Been trying scrappies but they don't want to separate it from the fan. Looks like a whole unit.

 

Was thinking maybe Ford used this part somewhere else in their range.

 

Any ideas gratefully received

try the CMAX and Galaxy? they shouldnt be too different...

 

if you have a part number for the part you have we can have a look and see if anything else shares it?

Thanks jeebowhite

 

The only numbers on it you can see on the pic I uploaded but I think that maybe these are not part numbers.

 

Any help......

Part Number appears to be: 940002904

 

is this the engine fan your referring to?

 

if so looking at this (not sure its the right engine) but it does show that the fan is one unit with no other parts:

what engine is it?

 

On the plus side, both the SMAX and Galaxy are grouped together on this catalog, suggesting that the parts are the same. I would say you may find yourself best off looking for the parts in either car...?

Hi Guys

 

it's the small box which mounts by one screw on the fan housing. Ford told me that the number was not a part number.

 

It's a 2 litre petrol. The box appears to be a connector with live and earth. The live is ok both sides but the earth is not passing through. It is moulded and doesn't look to come apart.

 

Thanks for trying guys

well that part returns two possibilities

1) blower regulator

2) Car Fan Resistor

 

If it is attached to the fan, then your probably going to need to replace it as one unit...

 

http://eucatparts.co...&s_id_model=118

 

None of those seem to show this part seperately

Serious thanks for your efforts. More than guy at Fords was able to tell me.

 

So I guess its back to looking for a bent S max with a cooling fan intact ( not been able to find one as yet)

 

Thanks again guys

No worries, and yeah they are difficult to find as they are newer so are not yet written off.

 

Go to an online brokers, you pop your details in and your request goes to enrolled parties across the UK, if they have one in stock, then they let you know a price.

Erm, how do you know the cooling fan isn't working. Has your engine temperature actually reached the point where the fan is supposed to kick in? Which is about 110-115deg C if I recall correctly.

 

Despite all the heat we have had & the number of traffic jams I have sat in recently, I've not seen the temp on my S-max go above 95 deg yet.

Hi

just had MOT and was told then fan not working. Twice since stuck in traffic and needle heading well towards the RED bit. Popped bonnet and fan defo not working but you can hear clicking. That  I think is it switching.

 

There is live through the relay (?) thing but no earth at the business end. My auto elec bloke said it was the relay but now I'm not so sure. Ford don't seem think there's anything in there to fail so gonna try the relay in the fuse box next.
