Ive got an AC fan from a Y10 that is a perfect fit for a panda. Has a bit of heat resistant board and reflective material in front of it in anticipation of it being near to the manifold . Ive been saving it for a potential use in my panda but if you need it Craig I can sell it to you. labelled as 10 in the ePer image below.

Thanks for the pic and offer. Dont think ill be using one as im going to keep blocked of space to a minimum. I only really want to add a brow over the top of the lights.. but incorporate the lights in it aswell. Once i get some ideas donw ill draw them up to 11 and work out uncovered surface area and compare to a standard mk2 panda pre injection grille with lamps as i have one in the garage and one of the fiat accesorie versions with the lamps built in. Jon Ill be needing your help with that bit
The shaded bit will be were i have fibreglass. Though the F I A T logo at the top looks cool and the 5 chrome stips too. Will have a go at making one on the computer later tonight. just not sure on colour.... black or green colour coded.... Black will be considerably easier. Had to take a pic on camera as its to long to fit on out A4 scanner Attached Thumbnails   __________________ 93 panda
to be sure i like the style. Its reminding me a an evo 10focus rs front with the angled outward edges a abit. Like its ready to eat up the road.... i wish EDIT quick mock up on paint of all things and it looks very flat lol. will have a go at a full size cardboard one tomorrow evening. Need to find some 4 inch spot lamps now... any ideas Pic below Attached Thumbnails   __________________ 93 panda

Hope this helps thanks mate. do you also think the front panels are interchangeable too

Originally Posted by Most Easterly pandas I has a remote header tank because when used properly off road at all different angles the normal 2wd rad will leak out of the top filler cap I think a 2wd rad can be used in a 4wd but not the other way around. Just means youll have to places to choose filling it from And make sure its a rad out of a 999cc or 1108cc panda and not the 769ccs as the rads in them

Im afraid radiator from 4x2 (even 1100) in certain conditions (off-road high speed) could be not enough. Its the same story with 750 radiator coupled with 1000 engine.
Originally Posted by Most Easterly pandas Hi Sutjeska I can see your point about the radiator size and cooling capacity but I believe the 2wd and 4wd radiators to be exactly the same apart from where the tanks are located.

I dont think the fan runs on a thermo switch in the radiator like you used to find (that you could bridge with a paper clip to work the fan constantly) It switches from a sensorswitch on the back of the engine via a relay. If the fuse and relay look ok then it could be this sensor. Saying that I seem to recall a few burnt out fans cropping up on here a while ago. For parts try httpwww.shop4parts.co.uk
The panda is back complete with new radiator and running sweet as usual. Gonna service her in next few weeks too so shell be good for another 12 months.

But the 4x4s are all manual so thats ok). Youll need to remove bumper and possibly
Hello hollister you must remove the front bumper to access the radiator do not touch the condenser tubes if no freon out you just have to separate the radiator from the condenser then you must remove the screws from the bottom of the bumper plus you have to remove the debris shield front always access the screws of the front bumper but if you are not familiar with this work I suggest you get it done by a mechanic you see
As said you dont touch the aircon condenser Remove bumper 2 bolts to split the condenser from the radiator and 2 pegs to release the radiator from the front panel
Originally Posted by Most Easterly pandas As said you dont touch the aircon condenser Remove bumper 2 bolts to split the condenser from the radiator and 2 pegs to release the radiator from the front panel Many thanks it sounds like not too difficult would you say the front badgegrill should come out to make it easier to get at everything or is it probably enough just to take the front bumper off Also do you have any tips to help get the correct radiator for the year etc
Grille has to come off to remove the bumper iirc. radiator really depends upon year and if the vehicle has aircon. Yours does air aircon by the sounds of it is your expansion tank on the radiator or like earlier aircon models with it far left of the engine bay as a remote unit
The picture is of the left hand side of the rad as you look at the car is this the cirlce you meant Jon there isnt one i could see one the dropped side so this could be the problem EDIT Just seen Ricks post. Looks like its no. 10 im missing. Attached Thumbnails   __________________ 93 panda Mk2 CLX 11 Octavia vRS Last edited by CLXCraig 04-04-2009 at 1138 .   Quote   04-04-2009   14

Steve my panda has huge sentimental value I cant just scrap it unless it was totally useless.. ( pandafan Ill pm you about the radiator.. thank you once again my friend
Im near manchester. For now pandafan has kindly offered me a radiator so I should be okay. Is that price for a new one Ill keep a note of you incase i have further problems.
Originally Posted by panda1408 An original 750 rad is the same as a 999 rad your Oynx probably had a Mk1 rad as they were much smaller. Not it isnt it is indeed smaller on the 769cc engines to that on the 999cc ones OP fitting a bigger radiator should be ok Id go for the ebay one myself Jon.
no way to make it fit plugs a different size too so I have no idea what panda the motor came off. The old motor was totally shot though and dead burnt out inside. I would take some pics but the motor literally fell apart as I removed it from the cowling so there is not much to see. So due to a terribly tight time schedule I have ordered a universal fit 12 fan. But afterwards began to worry - The fiat

Pretty sure that radiator is located by pegs fitting into a rubber grommet so there is intentionally a bit of play. Ill go and check...
Many thanks i thought it maybe on a flexi monut but did not expect that amount of travel still good news means all ok and no getting the tools out to effect repairs. Only other problem i need to finda a knock from the front end passanger side when i hit a bump not sure if its anti roll bar or other suspension component yet - most annoying though as othwise a quite car. Saw your review on the panda
I have a 59 plate 1.2 Dynamic and at the last service (24k miles) the garage has noted that the air con radiator is in a very poor state . Sounds similar to yours a good number of the fins are missing. I rarely pressure wash the car (I rarely wash it to be honest) so I dont think that is an issue. Now its been noted I will push for a new radiator under warrantee at the next service. Shame as the rest of the car seems in good order. doctorchris thanked for this post
Other than the missing fins there is nothing wrong with it so I doubt youll succeed on a warrantee claim. Mums Yaris is the same with the cooling radiator where its direct line with the air flow in the grille. Its normally caused by lots of little stone etc Id have though as isnt happening where the radiator is protected by the bumper etc
