      Hey everyone just got back from h2o and an incident had happened. I hit a man hole cover and snapped the bolt out my dogbone mount. so everyone know the motor shifts forward, a hole gets pinched in the AC hose and the serp belt gets worn down.

      Since that has happened my Main fan (larger fan on radiator) will not cut off when fuses are pulled out. I have checked but do not know where the relay is or what fuse really controls the main fan. Need help how to fix situation. Thank you!

      The fan control unit is integral in the primary fan (driver's side) in the MKV's. I can be sure that you need to replace the main fan. I see this all of the time, its too bad they do not have a separate control unit to be sure, but this is your solution. Note: I obviously can not diagnose your car online but I am 95% sure of the fix. I am a tech specializing in German cars, keep me updated.
