I didn't really think it would be any good, but Autohaus seems not to stock the Sachs branded one anymore. I'm still surprised people can produce and sell things that don't work... I installed another new chinese made Behr to a C200 and that one worked fine, so I was hoping same here.

It's permanently engaged and the car sound like a jet engine. The old OE one would switch on when cold sometimes, which is less annoying, so I'll put that back until I can find somewhere that sells the Sachs unit.

I know there have been warnings, but has anyone at all had any luck with these?

This would be a great time to just dump the prehistoric clutch fan and replace it with a nice electric one.

I bought a Sachs one which works perfectly. If you get really stuck you could try Eurocarparts here in the UK. It cost about £60, cheap.

Pelican parts sells the sachs clutch. I just bought a Sachs /Horton oe from them for my car.
Hey, I just checked Pelican Parts, but they only show APA and Behr parts, no Sachs. Do you mind letting me know where exactly on the site it is, or their part no?

Sorry, I assumed they carried them for most if not all aplications. They had the Sachs for my car. Since they don't have it your best bet would be parts.com or the dealer,

Have you checked all the other online houses? Also, call GermanStar- they have, and can get many parts not listed on their site.

Can someone supply the brand, part number, and is possible the supplier for the electric one?
It would help a lot of owners in my opinion.

A lot of people have used different types of fans for the electric conversion. Simply search electric fan conversion and a few threads with specific brands used should pop up.
