Frequently asked questions about cooling fan repair & replacements
Read our answers to questions about cooling fan repair costs, symptoms and more.
What does a Radiator Fan Motor do?
Fresh air is supplied to the radiator by the radiator fan which is mounted on the radiator and sucks in fresh air from outside the car and blows it through the car's radiator core. The radiator fan motor powers the fan and is thus a critical component of the radiator.
What does a cooling fan replacement involve?
- Mechanic will inspect the cooling, electrical and computer systems to establish whether the issue lies with the radiator fan.
- If necessary, the mechanic will replace the radiator fan.
- Mechanic will re-inspect the system and test drive the car, if necessary.
Can I do a cooling fan replacement myself?

How long will a cooling fan replacement take?
A cooling fan replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time.

How often should I replace a cooling fan?
Always replace the radiator fan motor as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. It is essential that the radiator fan is kept in a good condition, this should contribute to a prolonged lifespan. A non-working radiator fan will mean that the engine coolant is not properly cooled, leading to overheating of the engine, which can lead to severe engine damage if not adressed.
Should you experience any of the problems noted earlier prior to the next scheduled service it is important to have the radiator fan motor inspected and, if necessary, have the radiator fan motor replaced.
Can you drive a car with a broken radiator fan?

How do I know if my radiator fan motor is bad?
If you experience an issue with the radiator fan and are not sure whether it's the radiator fan motor that's bad then it is advisable to get help from a professional mechanic. They can identify exactly which part is at fault and advise on next steps.
Is a faulty cooling fan an MOT failure?
A faulty cooling fan in itself should not cause MOT failure as it is not checked as part of the MOT. However, it can lead to overheating and engine performance issues which in some instances can end in an MOT failure if it is deemed safety critical.
