Confirmed working! Thanks so much for this I would have been out several hundred dollars. and i got confirmation from the seller that the vehicle that it was pulled from had 75k miles on it, so it should be good for more years ahead in my car. My car is 10% Mercedes now.

Well my engine overheated and the fan wasn't on, BIG sign lol, and yea when my mechanic tested it, it sounded like a bucket of bolts when it spinned.

All told The part I got for maybe $176 The Motor has to the EXACT BOSCH Motor explained in the beginning of this thread.
Labor $211

Much better than the close to 1k (w/labor) price tag for a new one.

Mines been losing coolant, and I'm worried about head gasket or water pump - they would cost even more...

DO you know its leaking or is it just evaporating? Park your car underneath a clean piece of cardboard overnite and see where the leak is coming from. If its not leaking it could be a failing fan and its being boiled away.

I would think if yours sounded like "a bucket of bolts" it is trash.
