Not really..
but if you do - the fan will probably go bad way before its time..
And if you decide to do that - I would advise getting the fan from a parts store that will offer a life time warranty.. So when the fan goes - you can get a free replacement..

Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

Hi, i replace the thermostat and water pump flashed the radiator has coolant but still overheating, what else could it be its golf 4 tdi diesel 2002. Thank you

Radiator may have rust/salt deposits inside, if that is case its cheaper and better to change the radiator. Also for future don't use normal tap water in radiator, use a coolant + ph balanced water meant for radiators to reduce salt buildup inside radiator.

Also check the radiator fan is working ok and rotating in the right direction, sucking cool air inside not blowing out hot engine air to the radiator. Some electric fans can have wires mixed up so they start in the wrong direction. (make sure fan is sucking cool air outside towards the engine).

In some cars, radiator fan has a top cover that stops hot engine air getting sucked by the fan, if your car has it, make sure it is fitted properly and is in good order.

Some cars have a fan fitted on the AC condenser, make sure this fan is working as well.

920 fan command 2 pin connector from

The 3 pin fan is basically a 2 speed fan- it has a slower fan speed for aircon and a faster speed for engine cooling.

Check the wiring on the fan- there should be a common earth, probably a black wire. The other two will need power for the two different speeds. Use some spare wire and connect the earth wire to the battery earth. Then run a power wire from your bat positive and connect to one of the other wires. As the fan comes on hold tight as it can have quite a kick to it!

Test which wire is for the fast speed and the connect that fast speed wire and the earth to the two pin connector on your vehicle. Ensure that the polarity of the wiring is right- ie the fan is turning in the right direction! If not, reverse them and this will change the direction of the fan.

I went to e-bay to find the answer. They list no taillights for your car. Layman's answer. If the two years of taillight look to you to be exactly the same, they probably are. Be blessed.

I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi

this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

2006 Jetta TDI cooling fan issues

When A/C is on, both fans should be on all the time. If one is not, probably a dead fan. Replace said fan.
