Where does engine fan for polo 2002 BBY engine located


The radiator fans are located right behind the radiator and sit in the front of the engine bay between the radiator and engine.
You cannot see much of the radiator or the fans looking down from the engine bay because there is a plastic panel on the front of the engine bay just above the front grille that runs from one side of the engine bay to the other and hides most of the radiator and fans from top view. If you remove the plastic panel you will be able to see both the radiator and the fan unit from the engine bay. The cover panel is most likely secured with both screws and plastic fasteners or just the plastic fasteners. These can usually be popped out carefully to avoid breaking them as they are reused and any screws obviously need to be unscrewed to remove them.

When refitting the fan shroud, position the shroud. It has a tab on each side halfway down the shroud that needs to locate in the radiator. Remove the centre pin from the shroud's clips completely. Insert the clip into its position and then insert the centre pin of the clip and push it in until flush with the clip itself.

How to change radiator


Radiator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Cirrus, Sebring Convertible, Stratus and Breeze CAUTION
Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system. NOTE: The radiator uses plastic tanks. Plastic tanks, while stronger than brass, are subject to damage by impact, such as slipped wrenches. Use care when working around these radiators.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air inlet resonator.
  3. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain engine coolant. NOTE: To open the drain plug on models equipped with a 2.5L engine, use a 3⁄8 inch drive extension 3 inches (7.6cm) long and a 19mm socket with universal joint. The drain plug can also be accessed by removing the right front fog light in the front lower bumper fascia.
  4. Remove the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Remove the push-in mounting fasteners securing the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator support crossmember.
    2. Remove the mounting bolts securing the support braces to the bottom of the crossmember.
    3. Remove the bolts securing the crossmember to the radiator closure panel.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts attaching the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Remove the crossmember from the vehicle. Fig. 2: Using a small flat bladed tool, pry up the center portion of the plastic front grille/fascia retainers, then pull them out 90903p02.jpg
      Fig. 3: To aid in a straight reassembly, matchmark the washer screws to the radiator crossmember using a marker 90903p03.jpg
      Fig. 4: Remove the radiator crossmember mounting fasteners 90903p04.jpg
      Fig. 5: Remove the mounting bolts for the hood lock latch mechanism 90903p01.jpg
      Fig. 6: Remove the radiator support crossmember 90903p08.jpg
      NOTE: The following step and associated photos describe original type hose clamps. Some vehicles may instead have a worm gear type clamp, which can be loosened with a screwdriver.

  5. Using pliers, compress the tabs on each hose clamp, then slide the clamp a few inches away from the hose end. Carefully twist and pull the hoses from the radiator.
  6. Disconnect the engine block heater wire, if equipped.
  7. Disconnect and plug the transaxle cooler lines, if equipped.
  8. Remove screw attaching support bracket for external transaxle cooler lines to the left side of the radiator, if equipped. Fig. 7: Relieve the tension from the hose clamp, then disconnect the upper coolant hose at the radiator 90903p09.jpg
    Fig. 8: If equipped with an automatic transaxle, loosen the hose clamp and disconnect the transmission fluid cooler hose 90903p14.jpg

  9. Remove the screw attaching the support bracket for air conditioning lines from the right side of the radiator. Remove the support bracket.
  10. Unplug the cooling fan wiring.
  11. Remove the air conditioning condenser mounting screws. Use care when working around the air conditioning condenser. Avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Care should be taken not to damage the radiator or condenser cooling fins or water tubes during removal. It is not necessary to discharge the air conditioning system to remove the radiator. Fig. 11: Access to the lower radiator cooling hose (1) and lower left side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the left fog light 90903p12.jpg
    Fig. 12: Access to the lower transmission fluid cooler line (1) and lower right side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the right fog light 90903p13.jpg
    Fig. 13: Remove the A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners 90903p16.jpg

  17. Connect the cooling fan wiring.
  18. Connect the transaxle cooler lines to the radiator, if equipped.
  19. Install the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Place the radiator crossmember into the vehicle in proper position.
    2. Install the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Install and tighten the hood latch mounting nuts.
    3. Install and tighten the crossmember-to-radiator closure panel mounting bolts.
    4. Install and tighten the mounting bolts that secure the support braces to bottom of the radiator crossmember.
    5. Install the push-in mounting fasteners holding the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator crossmember.
  20. Connect the engine block heater, if equipped.
  21. Install the air inlet resonator.
  22. Fill the cooling system with the correct type and amount of engine coolant.
  23. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to idle until it reaches full operating temperature. Check the cooling system for correct fluid level and top off if necessary.
