Screaming fan motor that Mazda wanted £241 + 2hrs labour to fit (£120).
Parts arrived from Mazda parts in 48hrs. Removed engine under tray (7 bolts - see undertray picture on this site for bolt position) + 1 nut each side stiffener for front bumber - remove at engine side. Two bolts on top of fan frame, two below that only need to be slackened, lift out, fit new fan and Motor to frame and put back together. Need one small socket set, can be done with car sitting on drive, easy peasy if you can jack it up. 20 mins to extract and 15 mins to re-assemble (inc 5 mins looking for dropped bolt on gravel drive!). Excellent service, good price and saving of over £260 - I'll be back
