    Hi this is my first day as a funster and I have a couple of issues with my Motor home no rush as it is in storage there is about 4 feet of snow down and the wind chill is -36 right now Brrrrrrrr cold.
    any hoo I will require a fan for my heater and most likely a switch as it only works on high speed bu then it squeals. This is a 1994 Flairon a fiat ducato and it has the 2.5 tdi any help as to where and how to get replacement
    would be appreciated.

    thanks Ron.

    think you will find if the fan only runs at high speed no 4 setting
    it may well be the rheohostat fixed to the rear (possibly)of the fan motor
    well it was on my 1998 duccato about £30-40 and you fitting
    DONT PULL THE FAN SWITCH OUT
    till you have checked the rheostat i did what a blinkg nightmare:cry::cry:

    hope this helps

    Hi Ron,
    its unlikely you will find a new fan assembly unless its the same on later models, as i believe fiat only keep stock for 10 years.

    can you take out the old unit and see what state the motor bearings are in and lube them...only a temp fix but may get you going for a while.

    the speed control may just be a series of resistors and you may be able to adapt something from another vehicle and fix to the fan housing.....but at -36deg you only need FAST speed anyway :Laughing:

    Ron and his wife, Susan, live in canada.....and possibly the only Niesmann Bischoff Flair bodied ducato owner there, so parts and servicing are a nightmare.
