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!

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!

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.

Works great
Bought this after the fan assembly on my wife's car failed and it works great, haven't had any issues with it. Also, don't undervalue the free tutorial videos that made the replacement super simple.

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!

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. I'll be using this site in the future.

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 couldn't safely jack my vehicle up high enough.

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.

This comes with the fan motors as well?
Jesus on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It did for me. Everything in the entire shroud including both fans with motors and the regulating sensor. It did not have the for "torx screws" that attach it to the car but you can reuse the ones on there. Very easy install. I referenced both 1aauto and YouTube.
Any idea who is the manufacturer of this part and how its quality/durability compares to the OE assembly?
Matthew C on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Most likely made in China. Fan has been on the VW for nearly 2 years no issues. Quality as good as OEM.
Does this part work for a manual transmission 2006 Jetta?

BEST ANSWER: This will fit your vehicle as long as it fits the criteria below:

2006 VW Jetta Radiator Cooling Fan Assembly L5 2.5L For Models With 150 Watt Cooling Fans
How do you know if you need the 150 watt assembly or the 200 watt assembly?
Randall B on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 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 didn't give me that choice. Good luck
will this fit 07 jetta gli assembly # 1k0121205g?
