Hi guys.

I just bought a salvageable 2003 E320 CDI, the diesel version, and the cooling fan is not working. I also have a 2003 E320 gasoline model but don't know if the cooling fan is the same for both vehicles. I have the damaged unit and it has a circuit board attached to the shroud. I don't know if it's the fan motor itself that is bad or that circuit board. It shows signs of attempted repairs but I prefer to find an original fan but I have no idea what the electronic box attachment is called or what is its function! Any help? 


The cooling fan should be the same for both models as they both are w211. The control module most likely not.

To be sure go here select the to models and compare the two.

Also disconnect the cooling fan wire harness. Feed 12 volt directly to the fan to see if it works.  You should see a brown and red thick wires going to the cooling fan motor.

Let us know what you find out.

Hi guys. Thanks for the reply and pardon the belated response. I have been without internet in Venezuela, hurray for socialism... the fan and module are both bad. I am needing the part number for the original part. The fan that came in the back seat of the car is part number A2205000293 but a search reveals that it is for an S-Class MB. My vin is WDB2110261A223639. What is the correct part number for the radiator fan for my car?
