    missing cooling fan

    i realise the pic below is of a turbo engine, but i have noticed that it has a fan on the front of the radiator. having a little look around i have noticed that most astra's coupes and hatches have a fan on the front and an offset fan on the back regardless of engine size. mine only has the one on the back. is my fan missing? its a 2004 1.8 coupe i was wondering if its possible to get another fan for it?

    thats interesting because mine does have air-con and it works pretty well so is it missing then? in the summer months the back fan was running almost constantly when i had the air-con on. also if i left the ignition on but with the engine off it would start the cooling fan but wouldnt keep running.

    Ive got a fan in front of my rad in my 2.2 coupe....
    Has your motor ever been in an accident ? or had a new rad? - maybe they never put a new fan back in?!??!

    the car was brand new, i ordered it from the factory. i thought they may have revised it to save money and made the one fan do both jobs. is there an easy way to get another one?
