Which fan clutch?

Post by warhammer23 »

Hi guys. I need to replace my fan clutch on the Z3 2.8 from 1997. Which brand shall I go for that will last a few years? Is it Mahle the OE one?

Thank you.

When I replaced ours on a 2.0 about 5 years ago, I bought a Sachs one from Autodoc. At the time it was about £85 (although I expect the price has risen since then) and it has been fine.

The BMW part number is 11527505302. What I can see, it seems like Hella is the original brand, and also very expensive. In Sweden we have a serious company selling BMW spareparts, and they suggest Vemo as first alternative, they also sell Hella and say that it is the original brand. The price of Hella is 3.5 times higher. This company (Schmiedmann, specialist in BMW, as they say) would not suggest an alternative that is not good.
