Hello again guys.

 

Still not found a relay (or whatever it is). Just been into local dealers. What a waste of time) so I thought I'd ask here.

 

I can locate said item at a local scrappy but it's off a diesel. Anyone know if it's a comparable part. Other option seems to be unit off a Kuga. Again does anyone have any ideas.

 

Thanks

Did you ever get anywhere fixing this issue or find the Fan Relay/Regulator/resistor (I've seen it called allsorts)?

I found this while looking myself;

should be comparable, its part of the electrics and not the mechanics so I dont see why you couldnt just use it.

It seems to have the same part number but could there be any internal setting that are different and could cause issue, difficult to know I guess?

Hi everybody and thanks for the effort.

 

Short answer is NO! I was told quite categorically by 3 Ford main dealers that it is the same part for diesel or petrol. Even gave them genuine reg. nos. to be absolutely sure. Armed with this info I went to my local scrappie who had 2 S max in the yard and removed BOTH parts for me to try. (Both diesel). No luck I'm afraid so until I have a spare £270 for the complete arrangement to buy and then extra to have it fitted I am fitting a switch by the steering wheel to operate the fan if/when it overheats.

 

Thanks again guys.
