Looking back now seemd like id hit the wall & i nearly scrapped the car , wasnt till i contacted the same fellas ive been using for a long time they swayed me & made me see even tough other things needed doing it was still cheaper to keep & repair , when they took the engine & box out it was so much better for them to work round , i hepled a little, most of the time they made me still & watch . Dodging the rain , being out in the wind , losing daylight , there other call outs they had to sort, plus people i dont know asking me if they can use my tools & giving me a mouthful when i said no sorry cost me a lot building up my tool set i dont lend out , i made that mistake when i was in my 20s lots tools never getting them back .. some people !

Yo, my radiator fan doesn’t run at all. The relay is super easy to access so thinking of replacing that first. Can anyone tell me the oem part number for the radiator relay. 2012 c3 Picasso.
The relay has the part number 98372a 01 on it but can’t find an exact replacement
