Hello and Welcome -
My name isXXXXX happy to help you ..
Hello - I see you have joined me.. Is it the fan shroud thats come detached off the radiator - or the fan from the motor itself?
The fan is attached to the shroud. The whole thing is unattached.
So the black shroud complete with fan, has what come away from the radiator - back toward the engine..or, dropped through the bottom?
Dropped through the bottom.
Ok, the bottom of the fan shroud should be just clipped in / hooked in - at the base of the radiator - and the top is fastened to the top of the radiator - for some odd reason the fixings must have come loose and dropped out - It could be also that a part of the radiator -where it affixes, has rotted - you will have to check carefully... Then go with what you find. ie - if the radiator has rotted, it will have to be replaced as a whole before you can re affix the fan shroud / unit.. but its just a case at the end of the day of fitting new small nut/ bolt and washer to attach the shroud to the rad..
I dont know if you have looked closely at it as yet - but you will see where the fixings should be quite easy... you will likely then have just holes where the fixings were -
Or rotted area where the fixings should have been...
Thanks. I'll have a look but I think this may be a small jog that turns into a big one.
Umm yes ! Thats why I mentioned the rot issue on the radiator...its very unusual for this to have happened - so its either that..or its been off before and not re fitted tight - that could have happened maybe - its hard to know - but thats why I mentioned that to help you further hopefully..
