4.1.6. The radiator fan

Check

An electric food to the cooling fan moves through the lock of ignition and the fuse. Management of the fan is made by a temperature-sensitive element established on the right side in a radiator.

The fan should join at excess of working temperature of the engine, that is some minutes prior to an input of an arrow of the index of temperature of the engine in red sector. If the fan does not join, remove wires from a temperature-sensitive element, connect them among themselves and include ignition. If the fan after that earns, possibly, the temperature-sensitive element which is subject to replacement has failed. In a case if the fan still does not work, check up, whether pressure to a temperature-sensitive element moves. If pressure on a temperature-sensitive element is absent, damage of wires is possible, or has fused the fuse. If pressure moves, check up reliability of connection with weight of the second wire of the gauge. If the temperature-sensitive element and electroconducting in a good condition, means, probably, the fan electric motor is damaged. The electric motor can be checked up pressure giving on it additional wires from the accumulator.

Removal

MODELS WITH PETROL ENGINES WITHOUT THE AIR CONDITIONING

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove an electric socket from the engine of the fan of a radiator and release electric wires from скоб supports.
2. Unscrew the top bolts of fastening of the fan of a radiator to a back part of a radiator.
3. Take the fan in gathering from the bottom fastening and remove it from a motor compartment.
4. Unscrew nuts, remove a lock ring and remove the electric motor of the fan of a radiator from a casing.

MODELS WITH PETROL ENGINES WITH THE AIR CONDITIONING

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Disconnect both plugs from the accumulator, then remove the block of the relay and the safety locks, located in front of the accumulator.
2. Disconnect an electric socket from the auxiliary fan.
