Great Part!! Great Service!!
The part arrived at my house fast and fit my car perfectly!
March 23, 2017
Works great at a great price!
Bought this to replace the fan assembly in my 2009 VW Rabbit. I had previously had an issue with the small fan not working so I changed it out and about 9 months later I had the same issue. It turned out to be the large fan that was faulty - it didnt turn on the little fan. Looking around online, I found this complete fan assembly from A1 and it was cheaper than Amazon or AutohausAZ. Very easy to install (A1 even has a video to show you how!) and its been working great in the summer heat!

2008 Rabbit
Watched video on YouTube bought the radiator van from 1aauto. Tools that a had and buying a 3 ton jack and stands. Did the job in 90 mins. Perfect fit van works great. VW dealer wanted a arm, leg and deposit. Post my videos!!

An easy fix for my 2007 Jetta
The fan assembly is identical to the original. I received it 3 days sooner than anticipated and thanks to the great YouTube video instructions my son & I installed it in less than an hour. It works perfectly and 1A saved me about $500!

Fantastic bargain
Perfect fit for my 09 rabbit. 2.5. 45 minutes installed and performing as expected. Substantial savings over big box parts chains and dealer. If you need this part get here. Delivery time better than quoted.. Will shop with these guys some more in the future..

I was apprehensive to work on my VW but the part fit perfectly, and the instructional video made the process safe and simple.

Good product, speedy delivery
Got the fan within 2 or 3 days and it fit just As the old one did. Easy to install and it was simply a plug and go device. As of now, Ive had the fan in for about 2 weeks and it works great.

Perfect fit at a fraction of the cost
Ordered the fan on a Friday, received it Tuesday and put it in Saturday. The DIY video was extremely useful as well. Part fit perfectly and took less than an hour thanks to the video.

Perfect fit, fast shipping.
Ordered this part on a Sunday afternoon, had it at my house by Wednesday evening. Watched the quick video on the site, and had the old fans out, and the new ones in within two hours. I will be ordering all parts here from now on!

Excellent value
I needed to replace my condenser fan that quit working, this is just what I needed. Replacement was easy and took about 30 minutes. I could have just replaced the faulty fan motor, but for not much more I replaced everything with a new assembly. Fit was perfect, no issues to install.

Exact fit, perfect function
This part was an exact fit for my 2008 Jetta, and it cost me HUNDREDS less than a genuine VW part. One thing to note, I actually had the part installed by my local auto shop (1.25 hours labor charge); the fan assembly is very tall and because it slides in through bottom of the engine bay, clearance is an issue and I couldnt safely jack my vehicle up high enough.
June 21, 2018
Not bad guys
Part arrived on time and works. I have an 09 jetta 2.5 SEL sedan and this was the exact fan I needed. I used the how to video which was exactly how it was done. Very helpful. Ill be using this site in the future.
June 30, 2018
Highly recommend
Easy site, product arrived quickly no issues. Product worked great. Price was way cheaper than many stores. Would definitely recommend!

Easy ordering, great delivery.
I found a new place to order my parts. Easy ordering, delivered quickly and exactly as promised. Fit perfectly. Will be ordering again soon.
July 5, 2018
Works Well!
The item came on time, it was affordable and I had a mechanic install it. Now the AC and fans on my car are both working much better!
July 6, 2018
Works great
Bought this after the fan assembly on my wifes car failed and it works great, havent had any issues with it. Also, dont undervalue the free tutorial videos that made the replacement super simple.
July 9, 2018
Easy diy
I watched the video and it went exactly as shown. The vw jack was enough to raise car onto jack stands with plenty of clearance to remove and install. Fans are functioning and all is well.

Great product/excellent price
I ordered the radiator fan for my 2006 VW Jetta. The part arrived on time, packaged to protect part from damage. The online tools helped me select the correct part for my vehicle. I was a little apprehensive to order parts online, but the part came, was a perfect fit, and the provided video was a huge help for a successful completed job! I will definitely use A1 Auto for all future purchases!
August 1, 2018
The product fit perfect in my 06 Jetta. The AC works like it is supposed to with both fans working. So easy to install. Couldn’t be happier. Thank you A1Auto!
August 8, 2018
Great service
Bought a VW radiator support for my 07 VW Jetta hooptie and this place saved me some ends. Beats getting raped by the local VW dealer. Thanks 1aauto ????
August 31, 2018
Works great
The depth of the fan motors is actually less than the stock item. Works great, no issue and it went right in.
September 2, 2018
Great product, great price, delivery done in timely manner!!A++
What more can you ask for! This product came as discribed and had a video for us DIY folks. Went to other local auto parts stores and they wanted 3x’s the price I bought it here for. I caved at first as they (auto parts store) said they would price match w/ delivery. Five days later, still no product with no tracking. Canceled order and ordered from and had it delivered with tracking in two days free! Thanks again!

Will this fit a Jetta 2008 2.5L automatic as well?

Brian F April 18, 2016
How do you know if you need the 150 watt assembly or the 200 watt assembly?
Randall B April 27, 2017
There should be a power indicator on the OE assembly, or you may call a dealership with the VIN and they should be able to provide the wattage.
Alex P April 27, 2017
Check the details on the description of the fan models. I have a 2.5 liter. It looks that yours is a 200. Compare the connection. Also check online for the part number. I checked the fit with the autopart store they may be able to give you a definite answer. When I changed mine it didnt give me that choice. Good luck
Roberto C April 28, 2017
Does this part work for a manual transmission 2006 Jetta?
Chris S September 3, 2017
At the time I had an automatic so Im not too sure.

Kyle W May 5, 2018
Any idea who is the manufacturer of this part and how its quality/durability compares to the OE assembly?
Matthew C June 21, 2018
Dont recall the manufacturer, but I havent had a issue since it was installed in 2016.
Donald D June 21, 2018
Most likely made in China. Fan has been on the VW for nearly 2 years no issues. Quality as good as OEM.
Christopher A June 21, 2018
Will this fit the 2010 Jetta Wolfsburg edition?
