    Needs some help with radiator fan. One of them (left) not working until I tap it.
    I wonder if that causing by carbon brushes?
    Can we replace just carbon brushes?

    Thanks a lot. SmartSelect_20201122-141248_eBay.jpeg

    My understanding is you can't replace the brushes. In the US you can replace the bad fan for around $55 usd parts but I would replace the whole assembly for perhaps $105 usd parts. Use the UAC brand for aftermarket as the lesser models will fail early. Or get a used oem if you must.

    Thank you, I already order both fans to replace and I'm thinking about trying to get the old one fix by replacing the carbon brushes, I don't know if it works or i could find the right carbon brush.

    Thank you.
