    Air conditioning SUCK OR bLOW??

    i just fitted a fmic on my coupe turbo, i have air condtioning.

    Just wondering if i need a fan or can it be run without a fan???

    also my pipework runs very close to the air con radiator..... will it get so hot it can melt anything????

    also i have on order a slimline fan but i need to know if the vauxhall fan is suck or blow??

    cheers all

    Mine was never built with a fan and I know some others are like this too, but I'm not sure if my radiator fan has been beefed up as a result?

    If you don't wire it in the ligt on the dash normally comes on and the other fan runs at full power (As it thinks there is a fault).
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    just wondering if they do actually need a fan then?? wondering if some were made without a fan on the front and were programmed different so they dont sling up a fault and just run the normal fan on full power...

    they are not a air con fan, both are cooling fans.
