The Lincoln Town Car paid a visit to the garage today with a fierce noise emanating from the engine bay. A closer look revealed a scraping sound from the fan assembly.
As we removed the suspect fan assembly we could identify lots of play in the actual shaft of the electric motor as well as upon a closer look, a plastic fan blade that had separated.
When the shaft of that motor starts to age, it can develop excessive lateral play and cause that fan blade to wobble and come apart. In severe occasions that whole assembly can come apart and project itself through the radiator, creating a huge financial mess.
We provided a Dorman Fan assembly which comes as a complete unit. The Dorman brand meets OE specification, is built to last and gets the job done for the long haul. ‘
