My fan clutch is cooked, 90 560SEL....

Anyway have a spare they can sell?

I'm also interested in Idle Control Unit, Idle Control Module, and Idle Control Valve if any one has full functioning units lying around...

PM if you can help me

Have you tried a forum search? The archive has a wealth of information.

Please click 'User CP' on the top tool bar, and complete your profile with a location and model of your car.
It makes it easier for members to offer advice. MB produced different, and region / Country specific versions of our cars.

Welcome, to take advantage of all the forum features, please re visit the 'Welcome to the Forum' tutorial sticky on top of the W126 page, as well as the two DIY stickies.
It will show how to search the forum (3 words min.), and has a link to the Russian MB site where you can run a VIN#.
Cheers

P.S. When I lived in Las Colinas, there was a 'Pick a Part' (octopus/pulpo) in South Dallas, or try to find a Mercedes dismantler. You should be able to feel plenty of resistance when you turn the clutch.
They are not very expensive new, and the 'how to install' can be found with a forum search.

Hey BigD, another possibility on your fan clutch is what I did when mine went south, After removing the old clutch I mounted an electric fan (rated for a smallblock V-8) and wired it into the A/C circuit with a fused relay from a wrecked Benz. I haven't had any problems with it so far and a side effect, slightly better mileage due to no fan pulling on the engine and it runs cooler with the A/C running :thumbsup:
