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 actually 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. This is a drop-in replacement on the 7/8″ thick OEM radiator. If you have installed our 1.5″ thick heavy duty radiator in your SSR, you will need to trim the interface seal on the fan. Instructions on how to do that are available on the radiator product page.
Airflow through the SSR radiator was measured (using a small wind tunnel) at 2500 cfm when the fan is on high speed.
Please check to see if you need the added option for a new (vehicle side) connector on the wiring harness. This option will let you replace a damaged connector when you install the new fan. Having a good connection is paramount, so please inspect your three pin connector to be sure it has not been melted or compromised.
This fan is “built to order” and your fan will get put into the fabrication queue when ordered. “In Stock” means that I have all the parts on hand to build one for you.
NOTE: If you require expedited fabrication and shipping – your SSR is disabled and it’s your daily driver, etc. – please note that in the “Order Note” section when you checkout. (May incur additional shipping costs.) I will contact you directly to discuss your options.
