My s-40 developed a whirring/spinning sound coming from a silver-conical shaped device located the right of the engine near the fuse box. It has a round top and has a few wires coming out of the front side of it. I noticed this when I turned off the car and heard that something was still spinning, but it was NOT the fan motor. When I popped the hood, I could hear this "thing" spinning, and when I touched it, it was very very hot.
So, what is this and is it something I can replace myself? It looks like it only has 2 bolts holding it in place, but I dont know where there wires go to, or come from. Any assistance would be appreciated!
