ye i know mate,but all those cars with the vm engine are hard to find around here,cant even find one on ebay,dont think the 2.3 or 2.8 will fit as my mate did the same to his 2.8 mu and ended up welding a fan on from a 2.3, not the best i know lol,the rad has not moved so it must of just been the force the fan hit the water,wouldnt know where to start fitting an electric fan so i will just keep hunting for the correct fan around the scrap yards/ebay ect,will post in the wanted section too,thanks guys :wink:
