Q: Do i need to replace the whole radiator cooling fan assembly?

asked by on

The radiator cooling fan is broken ... the interior part of the fan is dis-attached to the motor..

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will have to replace the cooling fan assembly if the fan blade and motor is bad. You may be able to find the individual parts separately but the fan assembly would need to be removed to find all the damaged parts to order all of them and may be more expensive that the whole assembly.
