            The fan plate they provided had 6 slots. The old motor has 8 slots. The nut they provided was right hand thread. The motor shaft is left hand thread. It looks like they put the wrong parts bag in the box. Otherwise the motor fits the mount reasonably well, had to angle one screw because the hole was off just a little.

              Comments about Factory Air Radiator Fan Motor:

              My radiator a/c fan motor went bad so the a/c compressor wasn't working. The fan motor would work if I tapped it, probably had a bad spot on the rotor or the stator. The replacement fan with housing was around $80. The motor was around $25 with $10 off. I kept the original housing and fan blade. The motor fit perfectly into the housing and the fan blade. Put everything in and it worked just like before. I had been running the a/c full blast every time I drive for 1 week. So far, no problems. The mechanic was going to charge me around $150 for a new fan/housing plus labor. It took me about 2 hours with videos on YouTube with a standard set of tools. Make sure you get the correct motor. This one is for WITH a/c. There is another on the website with parts, but it's for WITHOUT a/c.

                  Anyone that says this will increase performance is wrong. this is a replacement part not a performance upgrade. This motor failed within the first month. It has a cheap price and you get what you pay for. The factory replacement is 4 times as much but will not leave you stranded for atleast 18 years.

                    The fan works great. Replaced old fan that was no longer running. Without the fan the motor was getting hot. Now it works great. Good deal.

                              A:

                              With reference to your inquiry on the Factory Air Radiator Fan Motor - part# 35656, on your Saturn SL Series the cause might be a bad fan relay or a temperature switch. Try first to swap the relay with another. It would be located under the hood. If the switch is bad you will need a scanner to see what the temperature reading the sensor or switch is giving. If the switch or sensor is bad you should have a code. Check the coolant level (cold not hot). It is normal when the engine is at running temperature and the car is shut off for the fan to run sometimes. If the coolant is low and it is running hot it may stay on for extended periods of time. This may affect the battery life but not the alternator. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
