    The Ventilation-fan is running even with my Engine is off, I heard
    that it can be even the Fan-relay or the Fan-Feeler or what it is
    called the thing that automatically switch Fan on and of.
    Is there a Possible way to find out which one have to be changed.

    for a person with none mecanical qualifications to change theses

    Thanks in advance for the information.

  2. It is normal for fans to run on when the engine and radiator are hot to cool
    things down. They should then go off when the temperature has dropped. As it
    has been very warm lately is this the problem you are experiencing.

    On our 306 this was caused by a dodgy contact on the thermostat cable -
    50p for 2 new connectors and an hour of labour to find the fault! Key
    symptom was that the fan would run on even if the engine had been
    started and stopped a few seconds later.

    This is the way I have used to test that the fans are working. When you
    remove the connector the fans should come on slow and then at full speed.
