The fan is bad.Contact the dealer there was a recall on most of the S80's for that.

Does the apply to 00 models as well? And, is there mileage/age limit? Oh, do you have the recall notice #?

Yours might be under it.
Stop by your local Dealer and have them run the Vin# and they will tell you if there is any open recalls.
Sometimes there is a milage/Age limit but usually like 8 years or so.

Are you having a problem with yours?

I can tell you how to look if you have an updated one or not.

Look at the Fan. You will see a resistor inline on the motor assembly. If it has a black cover on it then it is the old style. If it is all metal and silver it is the new style.

think it is the older model cause it is not completely metal.

Now, is this a dealer only item or can i get one through an auto parts store?

Oh, wouldn't happen to have a PN would ya?

thanks.

If it is under Recall it will be done for Free by the Dealer.
