    I had this and it turned out the water pipe as you look into the engine on the right hand side was fouling the fan .Audi had recently replaced the cam belt and left it like that :keule: ,Luckily i checked it with VAG COM and caught it before it split the water pipe .It was stopping the fan spinning because the clip holding the pipe on was not in the correct position ! .Who knows what would have happened if i had gone on a long drive ...HTH.

    You can test the fan electrically using the 'output test' button on vagcom when logged in to the engine or aircon control module.
    It will be the smaller of the two fans, try to spin it by hand, probably stiff due to dry bearings. You can't dismantle the
    motor as it pressed together.
