A cars radiator is a central part of the engines cooling system. Responsible for removal of heat from the engine coolant, the radiator system cools the liquid by allowing fresh external air to pass over a network of thin pipes, losing heat to the atmosphere.
A <Model> electric radiator motor an essential part of this system. It is located between the radiator and the bonnet grille, where it powers a fan to draw fresh air across the radiators cores helping to cool the coolant.

Issues with a <Model> radiator fan motor include worn motor bushes, electrical issues such as wiring, fuses, temperature switch, relay or damaged fan blades due to exposure to extreme temperatures.
When working on a radiator fan motor care should be taken to ensure it does not automatically activate as the unit may start even when the engine and ignition are off.
