Check of serviceability of functioning, removal and installation of the fan of system of cooling

At the hot engine the fan of system of cooling can be activated at any moment, - observe extreme care!

Check

The electric fan receives a food from the storage battery. The structure of an electric contour of the fan includes a protective safety lock, the switch of ignition and the relay (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head). The control of functioning of the fan carries out the electronic block of management leaning against the data, temperatures of a cooling liquid arriving from the gauge. The management block is located at the left under a forward spoiler, behind a forward bumper.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. For check of serviceability of functioning of the fan start the engine and warm up it on single turns to normal working temperature. The fan should work before the arrow of the index of temperature of the engine on the panel of devices of the car will come nearer to sector of an overheat of a dial. If fan operation does not occur, check up serviceability of giving of pressure of a food on a corresponding wire of the fan and the relay (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head). Refusal of giving of a food can result выбивания from a safety lock, failure of the switch of ignition, malfunction of the relay or electroconducting damage. The probability of failure приводного the fan electromotor is not excluded also.

Removal

    1 — the Top fixing bolts
    2 — the Bottom support

  1. Accurately lift an impellent compartment.
  2. Transfer the fan on a workbench, turn out the fixing screw, disunite a contact socket and remove from a frame the preliminary resistor.
  1. Turn out fixing screws (1) and remove from a frame вентиляторной assemblages приводной the electromotor and крыльчатку.
  1. In case of need give screws (2) and separate крыльчатку from the motor.

Models Zafira without air central air

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove a forward bumper (the Body see the Head).
  2. Disconnect from the fan electroconducting and liberate it from intermediate clamps.
  3. Turn out lateral bolts and, having lowered вентиляторную assemblage, cautiously take it from an impellent compartment.
  4. Transfer the fan on a workbench, release clamps and remove диффузор, turn out three fixing bolts and remove крыльчатку. Turn out the fixing screw, disunite a contact socket and remove from a frame the preliminary resistor. In case of need release fixture and remove the electromotor.

Models Astra with air central air

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove the storage battery with a basic arm.
  2. Remove assemblage of an air cleaner with an air line (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
  3. Remove a forward bumper (the Body see the Head).
  4. Empty cooling system (Routine maintenance see the Head).
  5. Disconnect electroconducting of the fan, the pressure and compressor K/V gauge. Also disunite a back socket from the module of management of system of the cooling located at the left under a forward spoiler. Give a fixing nut and disconnect from a mudguard the grounding tyre.
  6. Disconnect from a radiator the top and bottom hoses.
  1. Turn out the top bolts of fastening of the fan to a radiator.

    1 — the Top fixing bolts
    2 — the Bottom support

  1. Lifting, cautiously liberate вентиляторную assemblage the fan from the bottom support and take it from an impellent compartment.
  2. Transfer the fan on a workbench, turn out the fixing screw, disunite a contact socket and remove from a frame the preliminary resistor.
  1. Turn out fixing screws (1) and remove from a frame вентиляторной assemblages приводной the electromotor and крыльчатку.
  1. In case of need give screws (2) and separate крыльчатку from the motor.

Models Zafira with air central air

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove assemblage of an air cleaner with an air line (see the Head of the Power supply system and release). Disconnect electroconducting from a measuring instrument of weight of air (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
  2. Release fixing a collar and disconnect a ventilation hose картера from a cover газораспределительного the mechanism.
  3. Having turned out bolts and having released clamps, remove from the panel передка the air resonator.
  4. Remove a forward bumper (the Body see the Head).
  1. Disconnect from the fan electroconducting and liberate it from intermediate clamps.
  1. Turn out fixing boats and take вентиляторную assemblage from an impellent compartment.
