2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Tue Feb 06, 2018 4:05 pm    Post subject: Radiator fan needed... non OE OK? Reply with quote

It turns out one of the radiator fans (not the resistor) has failed on my 4S, so I need to replace it.

An OE one from D911 is over £400, but Euro Car Parts have an H Tech branded one for £200, carparts4less have the same for £108, that's quite a saving...

Anyone tried a non OE fan?

If you go OE, get a price from your OPC, it will be cheaper than D911

Euro & Car Parts 4 less are the same company

If you go down the ecp or cp4l route create an account and they will send you money off emails every week, normally at the weekend which are sometime better than the ones they have on the site.

If you don't want to make an account you can also always use this "cp15less" discount code for anything over £100 and it gives you £15 off, over £75 cp10less give £10 off and over £50 cp5less £5 off and these always seem to work.

Something like a fan is fine to use non OEM parts for .

Porsche dont actually make many parts they get other companys to make them so it may turn out to be the same manufactuor !

Brilliant, thanks guys. Will order up the cheapo one with the discount codes above.

Supplementary question @ Demort... can I change it from the wheelarch side, or do I need to remove the front PU etc?

By all means have a go from the wheel arch area but im pretty sure you will end up removeing the PU and the radiator bracket to be able to replace it .

Ive only ever replaced radiators im afraid and the fan is removed from the Rad after it has been removed to swop over .

The bumper isn't had to remove and replace at all.

Well worth cleaning out the rads and fitting mesh while its off.

I think I have a spare one in the garage - I just need to make sure I didn’t bin it during my last clear out.... the resistor is broken though. You can have it if it is still there.. I am in Oxford if you are able to pick it up and you haven’t ordered a replacement already.. (it is used)

I bought it off eBay from a breakers a few years ago but the resistor was faulty..

I don’t think it is handed..

That's very kind... having looked, a new resistor (I could risk splicing the existing one in on the basis that it is the fan that's failed, the resistor may be ok, or not) is nearly as much as a whole fan from CP4Less, so I'll run with the new one. Thanks for the offer though, much appreciated. thumbsup

You just unplug your resistor and fit to the new part. a new fan won't come with a resistor.

Suitable resistors are like £12 a pair from RS Components, solder them up yourself rather than pay Porsche tax.

Ah, maybe I'm confused... isn't the resistor the long component on the bottom right of this pic?

You are correct - my mistake.

They do list the resistor as a separate part. I would check to confirm its included! Although probably quicker to buy it as you need one anyway.

I soldered new resistors into mine.

Fair point... I will check the resistor is included when I order.

Robertb,

Do you have the part no from Euro car parts / carparts4less as the one for 4S - partno 213330120 is over £500 on ECP (£362 with current discount) and £300 CP4L (£259 with current discount)

I can not find the H Tech on both sites for 4S - the only H Tech i can find part no 213330091 is non-4S. is this the one you went for and did you have any problems fitting to 4S?

Hi, I haven't got round to ordering of fitting it yet... I must confess I was not aware that there was a distinction.

I was just going to run with the one that came up on ECP from my reg no.

I'd be very interested to know if this is wrong, cheers for the heads up... sorry I can't be any help!

Are they different for the 4s?
Looking at this they look like the same part numbers I think.

Looking at the parts listing they are different

99662412700 - 4S
99662413500 - Non-4S

not sure if the fans are the same and interchangeable - but the connection + resistor are different
