Default Later Radiator Fans!

I just read a blurb on one of our "How-To Stickys" that said 2001 to 2003 PT fans had a lot of trouble--but not later years. Well, something to that effect.

So, since I got my fan replaced just last year (2010), I'd like to assume that the fan they put in at the dealer's was a newer, improved version of the fan. In other words, one of the fan years that were not mentioned in the article I read--2004 and up.

In other words, a fan that will last longer than my original one ....

How many 2004 and newer fans out there have also gone kaput? If I get a lot of "yay's", then I'll just assume the article was flawed--as well as, the fans in later years.

Tim

Hm? I was hoping for more positive results to my question. The "blurb" was found in a Sticky in the How-To section of this part of the PT Cruiser Forum. It was in a E-How article.

Oh, well, at least now I know how to replace the fan myself, the next time it goes out ....
