Dean, thatís not uncommon with these. I have the been there done that T shirt. Unfortunately there is only one fix, you have to buy a new one. At least the new one will come with a hub bearing. I bought mine from Rose Passion.

Hi John I was actually going to ask you about this. Do you think I can drive it for the rest of my holiday or am I best to not drive it until it's fixed? What's the cost roughly? When I replace it I'll be installing a single belt adaptor.

Dean - Given the state of your fan, I would not drive it and risk damage. Not sure about pricing in NZ, but in the US it is about $400-$450 with the bearing. Here is how I went about to change mine, a bit daunting at first but not that hard really. https://rennlist.com/forums/964-foru...l#post11378795

D, bugger! Probably not worth the risk of driving it.

Upside to maintain your engine bay with the fan replacement. Paint the shroud, check the alternator and brushes.

How long is your holiday? I donít think anyone is going to advise driving it around much because that crack is quite long and the possibility of total failure is high which would damage the shroud and decklid. That said youíve likely been driving with it like this for a while. Your car your money. You can mark it all and check for progression

As for when it happened, I reckon your eye just hasnít caught it before. It was there but not seen. I see everything now on these cars because Iíve been there done that with so many parts. You donít want me judging a concours!

Unfortunately the only new option is Porsche. With freight, customs etc they are about NZ$1,200 landed.

Iíll check my spares. I think I have a used one off the Silver C4.

Well, I do have one. Iíll have to check my photos to make sure the condition pre powder coating was excellent. Two blades have corrosion on the edge.

Hi jetta, nope unfortunately will be off the road for a while. Nothing compared to what you are going through though, I hope everything comes together for you painlessly and in your favour.

Hey Spokes, although I'm disappointed I think the same, will give me the opportunity to clean and check things.

Hey John, got another week off. Looks like the family wagon will be the weapon of choice!

Any extra damage to the deck lid would probably tidy it up a bit haha

I looked through all my old photos, I knew there were a few small hairline cracks but nothing like this. I'd say it's gotten worse.

Haha you are like me inspecting someone else's plumbing, I'm like Satan

Awesome I'll send you a text

Default Going into hibernation!




For anyone interested, spent the past 2 days giving the car a full spa treatment. Full clay bar, wet sand where needed and polish. Then went back in the shed where she will hibernate for a while until I accumulate some parts (and money haha) and I'm ready to install new engine fan

Wait, you just sanded and polished the car and you only posted one pic of the finished product!!!!

Single stage Guards Red is stunning after a proper polish, itís the only paint that looks try wet and ready to drip off the car.

What polish did you use?

Hi marine blue, well you wouldn't beleive it but I havnt taken many photos, my parents are over from Australia on holidays and I really wanted to get the car finished and back in the shed so I could spend time with them so I was basically just working like a machine to get it done! It was hard to get a photo where it truly shows how great it looks. Bear with me though as I think Mrs dingo has some.

Mate, I was actually in shock after I had done the first panel. The paint looks like hot jam or something haha you are right it looks like it could drip off the car!

I just used a generic fine polish from the local auto store, probably could have splashed out and bought an expensive one but It came up almost perfect.
