just done this on my 230 1996 ... I would suggest if you need to change the
fan coupler that you also check the water pump ..
the engine was overheating badly .. until you get your fixed keep an eye on
this as my resulted in the radiator exploding ( and dinting my bonnet! )
you need to ..
Drain the coolant
Remove the radiator (you can do it without doing this but it's hard ) and
fan cover. Watch out as some of the spring clips 'spring' off !!
Remove the fan and change the coupler.
When I did mine I change the water pump £50 and put on a new pulley belt £10
and of course the radiator (£100) The fan coupler was £75
Took two of us about 1hr (would have been more tricky if there is only one
of you doing it) .. but before you start check that you have a spanner big
enough to remove the fan coupler ( this is the big nut that you can see
without having to take anything a part ).. mine was on very well and took a
while to get it off. .. also note that its a left hand thread.
