Default FOURTH fan...

I have a 2008 PT Cruiser and was (am still) having problems with my air conditioning. The fan seemed to be the problem so my husband put a new one in. It worked find for a while, then failed. Put in another one and it failed. Failed again after 7 months and it's time to put in yet another.

Four fans.

Does anyone know how I can contact Chrysler and let them know that it's costing us a small fortune to keep replacing fans? I would somehow like to be reimbursed for parts and my husband's time.

It's beyond ridiculous at this point that we should have to keep replacing the same part... over and over again.

Any ideas besides calling Chrysler and giving them hell?

Not really sure... I'll have to ask my husband. We bought at least one from partsgeek.com but they have a couple different brands.

I just replaced mine last week. It is the third fan on the vehicle in 55,000 miles. The original was replaced under warranty by the dealer with another Chrysler fan. This time, I bought a Dorman for much less money and a lifetime guarantee.

Ooo! Lifetime guarantee sounds like what I should have gotten in the first place!!!! I'll look up Dorman to see what I can find.

I've heard of other PT Cruiser owners having trouble with the same thing... I'm wondering if it's a defect (or whatever you would call it, I don't know a lot about cars.. lol) in the Cruisers...

I'm definitely going to contact Chrysler to see if they can reimburse the cost of the fans and possibly my husband's labor.. I know, I'm probably dreaming but I'm going to try.

Here is the Dorman unit for your car, as long as it is NOT TURBOCHARGED! This is available from the Partsgeek also. I bought mine from a local auto parts store.

Let us know how it goes with Chrysler. I think there's about 10,000 owners wouldn't mind being reimbursed for changing out the fan.

I'll definitely let you know how it goes! It would be awesome to know the stats on just how many people have experienced the same problem.
