1984 500 SEC Euro version
I need a new clutch fan and looking at the Russian parts list it seems there is a cover (17) A1192060047 over the clutch (11) A1162001122 . I am missing this cover and local cost is 167.00 USD equivalent. Same cost for the clutch.
Is the clutch c/w cover? The drawing would suggest so, but my local supplier is telling me 5000 Thai Baht for each part?

What is the purpose of the cover, as other brand cars I have owned do not use such a cover

Since I need the entire assembly, Is there a higher flow mechanical fan as it is pretty hot here and the air con is on 100% of the time.

I am aware of the electrical fan mod and that might be a better alternative as one fan blade is nicked and the shroud is a bit chewed.

That part, at least here in US is a LOT less money.. I can't see how a simple cover would cost as much as a fan clutch assembly.


When the motor mounts on my 560 settled/compressed the fan blades started hitting the bottom of the fan shroud. New mounts solved that condition.
Of course, your situation may be different.

I have new motor and transmission mounts and part of the bigger fix

What is the purpose of the fan clutch cover, and it it just a simple cosmetic cover ?

In the drawing I posted it appears to be part of the clutch assembly, but 2 different PN?

You are correct.

In the drawing WE posted, the cover & fan clutch are 2 separate parts.

WE agree that it is a seperate part

My car has been running without it but I do not know if it adversely affects the fan performance. What is the purpose of the fan clutch cover, and it it just a simple cosmetic cover

Hi there again.

I don't know where the above earlier 'we' came from, sorry.

I do not know the purpose of that cover in front of the fan clutch hub.. No idea.

Later today, I'll look at my US 560 & see if its got one too.
It is listed for my Euro '91 but I cannot access that car currently to investigate further.
