    There are two electric fans on a B5, ones for the AC and the other is for additional engine cooling.

    Which fan is running? Open the bonnet and have a look.

    I only had ONE electric fan on my 1.8T... and that was for the A/C - so I deleted it when I removed the A/C and replaced the front panel with a non-A/C unit...
    NEW 6 cylinder 40mm front springs - £40

    PM me for more info

    if its on the engine side of the rad then its not the AC fan...

    Most cars have either one viscous fan on the right of the rad, or the viscous AND an electric on the right (when looking at the engine bay from the front)

    Does your car have two electric fans?

    Either way, there will be a temperature switch somewhere thats failed, and it will need replaced.

    What engine does your car have?

    If you look down between the engine and the radator you should be able to see two fans. One is normally attached to the engine, the other is electric.

    The fan is just a cooling aid for slow speed driving. I would imagine that it will be perfectly safe to drive the car to a garage (and anywhere else for that matter) as long as the coolant tank is full.

    Well afaik, 1.8T's only have one viscous coupled fan (ie attached to the engine) then another fan infront of the radiator for the aircon?

    You say the fan thats running for you is behind the radiator?

    A photo might help?
