I had some problems with fans on my old A3 and have recently got another A3 and would you believe it but think I may be having the same problem after fixing the old one LOL
The problem this time is that the main large fan is really noisy when it kicks in, sounds like an aeroplane taxing down a runway, is this a common problem and does it mean the fan is on its way out? The problem I had with the old A3 was that the fans didnt switch off so drained the battery, I guess this time round its slightly better as its just noisy but at least switches off when the car is off!
I guess at some point I am going to have to replace this larger fan and just wondered if anyone had the part number for this as Audi want to sell it as a fan kit which is £242 OUCH!
Would part number 1K0959455DT fit and can I use the existing cowling or has audi changed the hole positions to mount the fans?
I have an 04 A3 2.0 FSI sport engine code AXW
