This replacement for the main fan on the Chevy SSR is based on a Flex-a-Lite 180 Extreme. It drops directly into the existing brackets on the radiator. No additional mounting hardware is required.
Fits all SSRs, all four model years.
The fan is shipped complete and ready to install. It fits in exactly the same space as the 15816298 OEM fan. No mounting issues or considerations needed. It connects directly to the existing 3-pin fan wiring harness with Delphi connector parts. No additional wiring is required. It has exactly the same two speed functionality as the OEM unit. No computer reprogramming is required.
I have reverse-engineered the GM low speed function of the fan and replicated it identically. It uses less power than the OEM fan, but provides greater airflow through the radiator because of the full shroud and seal. The shroud provides complete coverage from top to bottom of the core and within half an inch on each side of being perfect.
Installation is simple and can be done in less than 15 minutes…. even for a novice. It goes in from the top and does not require a lift or jackstands.
Airflow through the SSR radiator was measured (using a small wind tunnel) at 2500 cfm when the fan is on high speed.
Shipping is approximately $40 to any location in the Continental US.
Please note the added option for a new (vehicle side) connector to the main fan. This is to replace a connector damaged by pushing a test probe into the female part of the connector during troubleshooting. Inspect your three pin connector to be sure it has not been melted or compromised. The Replacement Mating Connector (vehicle harness side) can also be ordered separately.
NOTE: If you require expedited shipping – your SSR is disabled or it’s your daily driver, etc. – please note that in the “Order Notes” section when you checkout. I will contact you with expedited shipping options and costs.
