Hi guys is anybody there who rebuild fan cluth before is that possible? because I have little problem with mine and seems like fan cluth bearing is bad it makes that ticking noise ,so can I change bearing only or I have to replace the whole thing and today I went to MB dealer just to find out how much it cost and is very very very expensive the prize is $750 WOW that is too much so any ideas oooo and parts person told me that V12 its a differente story means parts for V12 mercedes are more expensive and any other cluth won't fit for example fan cluth from W140 S500 so means IT have to be ONLY FOR V12 ENGINE so what you guys think ? can i change bearing or should I go with AFTER MARKET PART OR MAYBE used one because IN THIS CASE I dont really know what should I do for all help thanks a lot.

Lots of times the dealer will not sell some individual parts. For example a lot of dealers don't sell the wiper blade inserts, only the whole blade.

My suggestion would be to get onto someone like AutohausAZ and see if they will sell you the bearing.

Wow, if it's a Genuine Sachs that's not bad, it may just be V12 price gouging that happens a lot. Obviously the BEHR is listed as made in china, which means it will lock up nearly all the time.... sound like an airplane...

Go for it!
