First of all, you need to check that its the correct one for your car. On mine, a190E,it seems that two different ones were used. I got a two pin one first,wrong. When I went to put it on I saw mine should have been a three pin one. So I had to take it back and change it.I got mine in GSF,I think mine was a tiny bit cheaper than that one.


Fitting was simple on mine. There is a plastic sheild thing which was in the way, that simply pulled off,straight up.

Then I used a big socket,cant remember what size,just got it from my set and it came straight out.


I would check yours first before getting a new one. If you just bridge the two contacts in the plug with a bit of wire, if its working the the fan should spring into action,if it doesnt then you will need a new one.

Well thats the question, the two are both estates, one has electric and the other is viscous?

cheers!

edit pretty sure the 230TE uses a 2-pin sensor (1988)...3-pin may be for a/c systems?
no point replacing it til you've tested it though...

Got it serviced today, and asked the guy to check the fan as well.

He says it's the coupling. So I checked on eBay - 35

E220 is not highlighted, but it's the same as E200, correct?

What do you recommend? ECP or get it from MB directly? Had a look on ECP and it's 55.

The funny thing is, how do I know whether ECP is not selling the same thing, but overpriced? lol

Got the coupling today, and going to replace it on the weekend.

Is there anything I should know? How do I remove the fan? All I can see is just the massive nut there, holding the fan blade in place?

Or it can be done without removing the fan? :O

The large nut on the coupling is a left hand thread [ it should have small cut marks on the edges of the nut flats to signify this] you will need a a large water pump spanner to remove replace it. e.g. Halfords | Laser Fan Spanner 32/36mm

Got the spanner. Simply undo the nut and that's it? Or there's something else holding it?

Then the coupling is held by 3 hex screws, right?

Undo the nut remove the fan + coupling. undo the 3 allen head screws- remove plastic fan and mate it up to the new viscous coupling.

Where you may have difficulty in locking the water pump pulley to undo the nut [anticlockwise] A crude way is to lock it with vice grips to prevent it rotating- MB has a special shaped key that fits over the the water pump pulley allen screw heads
