Thanks for the email. So basically, if the fan motor has gone bad, can I just replace the motor, or do I have to replace the motor, shroud & fan assembly.
Also I was able to unsrew all 4 nuts for the fan, but couldn't get the fan out, since there is a big hose from the radiator running over it. Do I have to drain the coolant, remove the hose, replace the fan, put the hose back & refill the coolant, or is there any simpler way to just replace the motor.
Also what should be a fair labor charge for such a job at a local shop assuming that I can get only the replacement motor and not the entire assembly.

The local shop has quoted me $250 for the replacement motor including labor. Is this a fair quote.
My car is a 99 mitsu eclipse, non-turbo 2.0 DOHC.
