Hi everyone!

Just purchased my first T3 and as I was going home I noticed very loud sound coming from the front of the car. Never heard anything like this before.. sounds like a jack hammer. I even thought at first that it was roadworks somewhere ahead Smile The noise goes on for a minute or so and then stops. I did a bit of research, and I assume that this is radiator fan kicking in when the temperature rises. But why is it so odd? I believe this isn't a normal sound that T3 makes? 

What can that be? Here is a video with the noise:

That has to be something caught in the cooling fan blades,or the fan hitting it's cowling.
Lower the spare wheel if fitted,and you should be able to access the fan on rear of radiator then.
Obvious be careful as the fan is very powerful,don't have your hands anywhere near if it's likely to kick in !

Ignore everything i say,especially between 4.30 on a fri,and mon morning it`s just beer fuelled sh*te!
