well the auto lec has taken a look at the car and i called in to see how he was getting on and my chin nearly hit the floor:scary: as the whole of the frontend was removed, it appears that the fan motor has gone to heaven and needs replacing another £252 however i found one for £99 brand new on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Rover-75-MG-ZT-Cooling-Fan-Motor-NEW-A3_W0QQitemZ4645580718QQcategoryZ10414QQcmdZViewItem the auto lec said he could alter the wires if needed. so by friday i should have a working car again.
Saw the ebay offer for £99 which is a good price. Does the part No he gave correspond to the correct assembly for your CDT. He says to cut and solder if it is different but I beleive the assembly is model specific with the diesel control box having more relays/different configeration so I do not see you can just cut and solder. Are you still sure it was the motor and not the relays in the control box? Members have changed relays in the 'sealed' control box.
I inagine one can put a feed into the motor to see if it is duff
Set the aircon on coolest and recirc with engine running. Set of the cleaning stuff inside the car then shut doors and windows, drink tea and chat with cat for half an hour, reopen doors and windows to release any deodoriser still hanging about inside. Don't forget to turn off aircon and engine.7T5 said:hi
