    Hello guys

    My 2004 A3 1.9 Tdi Sport has developed a fault

    The smaller radiator fan wont turn off, even with the key removed from the car and sat for a hour or so after driving?, ive removed a fuse ( number 8) but the fan keeps going?

    What can i do?

    Thanks
    Chris

    capacitor in the fanblade goes its a common fault you can change the fans or there might be a repair kit on ebay

    Thanks

    Do you know if its safe to just unplug the fan at the connector until i can afford the replacement, providing i keep a eye on the temperature guage?

    in my case when one went on my old old 1.6 i actually had no battery issues leaving it going but then it wasnt spinning all that fast you could always unplug it overnight but i wouldn't recommend running without it personally i wouldnt do it

    Ok, ive ordered a new fan pack set from Audi with some discount! that should arrive tomorrow.

    I will be replacing this myself, is it best to drop the old fan pack out and remove the airbox and try lift it out?
