Rather than unlucky, I would see it as lucky you did find the fan fault. Otherwise you could have been stuck in a queue with the engine overheating to the extent the head gasket failed. Is the air conditioning now working the fan has been sorted ?

Indeed, I was in "glass half empty" mode...

 

The aircon always worked, but with reduced efficiency. I am assuming that the old electric fan was trying to spin on the lower speed setting, but not managing to do so, then finally spinning a bit when the aircon was engaged.

 

Now the motor cools OK and the aircon cools even better!

 

Time for our second summer holiday in the C8... about 1,000 miles ranging from motorway at 40º heat and 130 kp/h, mountain roads at 7% gradient a,d beachfront roads at 15 kp/h... 

 

I touched up a few scratches and re-sprayed a bumper corner last week, so I hope the C8 stays in a good mood!
