    slim line aircon fan

    been getting the light on for the rad lately so i first thought its cos there was only 1 fan so i ordered a new 8" universal fan, turned up today so off i went to fit it with the straps and plastic clips provided,

    first prob the old fan is ****ed and how its been fitted its all bent and stopping the blades from spinning, so took that off,

    will i be ok running just 1x 8" 80w 12v fan or will i need another,

    secondly, if your stood face on looking at the car from the front, which way should the fan blow, iv just connected it up to a jump pack and it sucks the air from the rad and blows it out to you

    is this correct, cos even if i flip the blade it does the same just not as powerfull

    thanks

    ps this is the fan i got

    took the old fan off today and took some pics of the wiring to see if its right

    also how the hell do i attach the fan, i slot the plastic part tru the fans but they interfear with the engine fan at the back, do i have to undo the aircon fan and do it thru the back or make some sort of bracket again

    here is some pics,

    the fan should suck towards the rad, not sure about fitting these, i have seen other fans fitted before with a cable tie type bit of plastic

    when you say suck towards the fan, do you mean it blows air in to the rad or sucks the hot air out the rad and blows it out the front bumper

    thanks

    should suck cold air in towards the engine, just think if ur cars sat at the lights and gets hot, ud want it suck cold air from outside onto the rad, not hot air from the engine onto the rad
