I think best step will be to take the fans out completely at the weekend, check and clean all the connectors and go from there. When the fans do cut in - they sound and perform fine. It is possibly a connector issue though rather than a part.
Do you need to take the rad out/bumper off to remove the twin fans?? Anyone know?
Unless it is not the resistors but the 2 speed relays playing about (coded L99 and L100).
I believe (although I could be wrong) the fan relays are located under the drivers side protective cover (under the bonnet) to the rear of the D/S headlight on our car.
Ours doesn't seem to overheat but to my knowledge I think the 1st speed sounds like it's working, perhaps the 2nd speed isn't. It never seems to get to the full speed anymore, just keeps putting the slow speed on for a few seconds at a time, then off again!
