What I have is this:-
Fan Assembly with the 2 Fans, OEM Plugs.
I am hoping for a PnP Install with the Pig-Tail Plugs & wiring already "There" & available in the present wiring harness with the need to just pop in the 2 relays in the fuse-box (there is connectors beneath where the Relays plug into at the fuse box so I'm thinking "Connectors ='s Wiring already there & ready to PnP) to finalise the retro-fit install.(I'm optimistic as the BMW Models were PnP).
What I just finally figured out as a "Stop-Gap" procedure for the interim while I sort out that actual feasibility of OEM Wiring availability & a PnP Install is that I procured 2 Thermo-Fan-Switches off of eBay. They are Adjustable with the Temp's Noted on the Dials with a Capillary Temp. Probe.
I will wire those in with Relays & Fuses & set them respectfully & accordingly to come on according to Radiator Core Temps with the Capillary probes fitted at different places in the Radiator Core after acquiring a temperature "Map" using an infrared laser thermometer to record the ambient Temps of different aspects of the Radiator Core.
That way, I can have my Cake NOW, & hopefully figure things out as to the retro-fit.
Worse case Scenario.
I'll have to abandon my hope for a PnP install but at least I'll have a properly wired up relay & fused circuit to respectfully actuate each fan as they should be as close to OEM Design as possible.
What say you.
Cheers for the follow-up!
