Ripped my radiater fan cord and trying to resoder it but Witch way does the radiater fan spin? Does it blow air towards the radiator or pull air away from the rad???? If I reverse the neg and positive the fan will spin either direction

I have no idea about Lambos, but on a normal car, if the fan is in front of the radiator it should blow or force air into/through the radiator. If the fan is on the backside of the radiator it should withdraw air from the radiator.

now, that said, for your scenario, I’d make a quick call to your local Lambo/Audi dealer.

good luck!

Thanks for the replies. I wish I would have seen them earlier. I got impatient and ended up taking the other sides fan off and ran 12v power threw it directly from the battery to see what direction it ran. And Yea u guys are right. Went to the store bought soldering iron. And just resoldered the wires, now the question is if my crappy welds will hold up 😂

Are you trying to solder two wires together or the wire to the fan housing? If you are trying to solder two wires together I would say they will not last. You should use actual crimp style wire connectors. Having not seen any photos if you were trying to solder it to the fan housing you might abandon that and consider a screw. If you post photos maybe we could help.

I wish I could change my username to my Instagram name (@vette2lambo) but there isn’t a option to change it 😂

Then you’ll want to mechanically secure the wire to the fan housing just after the solder so that any vibration in the wire would be stopped at that mechanical choke point. A screw or something that will cause the wire to not vibrate your solder loose. Then you want to finish your breaded chicken and mushroom dish!

alrite sounds good, thx. Think I’m going to try to use zip ties 2 secure it. If I put a screw rite after the solder I’d have to drill right into the fan motor not sure what would happen 😂 might break it
