    the two outer wires are for fan wiring the centre one goes to a big coil spring that acts as a resistor if you can find an original fan take a look on the back of it where the loom wires in then you will see what i mean

    NO, you need to retain the resistor, there are 3 wires that go to the resistor and 2 wires coming out of it to the fan.

    you will also find that you may have to run 2 7" or 9" slim fans so the EML doesn't come on

    use the search facility aswell, this has been covered alot


    I am running 2 x 7" slim fans along with the resistor which you need to retain from the OE fan.

    the reason I use 2 7" fans is because these slimline fans don't draw the same wattage as the OE fan and so the EML comes on thinking that the fan has failed.

    if you can get a fan take the loom from the back of that fan remove and use it to wire the new 1

    go to scrap yard, find a mk4 astra, chop a OE fan to bits, Pocket resistor.

    cut wire close to fan motor then you have a decent length to play with
