all i know is the turbos use a 4 pin. the extra pin keeps the fans on during the time where you turn your car off till it circulates enough air to cool the engine so the oil doesn't "bake" in the oil filter housing.007 or Pencilneck if you guys stop by again, do either of you know about the 4 pin fan on the 1.8t?
like who? tell me who else sells the 4 wire fan for under 100 bucks and I'm in............I haven't found it yet except this guy. At $45 bucks i'm willing to try and let you'll know how the fan holds up.STAY AWAY from hansautoparts. He's got about a dozen or two sites. They all sell chinese garbage. There is a reason everything on there is so cheap. I'm all for supporting local business (he's in NC) but I can't support his business practices. If you search "prothe" on TDIclub and vortex, etc. you'll find a lot of horror stories about him. How he's still in business I have no idea. Which, by the way, his business is Rothenbacher Engineering. Stay away.
There are plenty of reputable parts suppliers out there that sell things for good prices.
