Fan clutch help

Car runs a little hotter on traffic and culprit is the fan clutch.
In my area the only fan clutch I could find is swag fan clutch.
Has anyone tried swag fan clutch or should I stay away?

You have to use whatever you can .No bad stories about Swag. Do you have a pick and pull yard . May be you can pick up a good used one .Or go the full hog and go electric fan install these come up in the pick and pull yarde as they are fitted to other models of your Mercedes . Just mount it on the radiator put feed wires to it via a switch and a fuse.

This is a retro ride .

SWAG typically are lower tier quality wise, never used their clutches but seen issue with other parts.

Just import a Behr one, they cheap enough shipped.
