Default 08 535i cooling fan cracked - 08-19-2020, 06:13 PM

Hey guys,
Iím sorry if this is too far off topic but I am wondering if anyone has any advice for a new cooling fan blade without forking out over $600 for the entire assembly. The fan works as it should but I see a small crack in the blade and wish to change it out before it detonates the entire area. From what I read you canít buy just the blade? Any ideas?
Thanks all.

Oh, I remember that. The fan grenaded on my E39. Took out the radiator, condenser, shroud, hood pad and put a dent in the hood. Ended up putting in an aluminum radiator and electric fans. No idea what’s out there for the E60, but definitely do something before it explodes. That was a simple fix that ended up costing more than $3k by the time all was said and done.
