Hi. Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with the cooling fans. Mine started making a terrible noise and I found that the drivers side fan seems to be losing it bearings. It's wobbling and vibrating quite a bit. The assembly is upwards of $350 and I was wondering if anyone knew if you could replace/repair just the one fan instead of the whole assembly. I have it unplugged now and as cold as it is I don't see it over heating by running just one fan. Thanks for any input!

I've not heard of others having this problem. But your car is in warranty. This sounds like a warranty issue unless something hit your front end.

Common problem. Had it on my 2015. Shroud assembly is currently on national backorder.

I'm having the same issue and the car is at the dealership... 22K miles 2015 QX60 model. Noise was from the passenger side and I'm pretty sure I can feel some play on the radiator fan. Either way... this is why we dropped the $$ on a car that still has a factory warranty!

My wife's 2014 just started experiencing this same issue. Looks like the bearing is going out on the driver's side fan. Passenger side doesn't have the same issue. My wife's just crossed over 61,000 miles, so it is no longer under warranty. Looks like I'll be replacing it myself. Also not sure if you can replace the single fan & bearing or if you must replace the entire assembly. Infiniti's fix is to replace the fan assembly to the tune of $1,100.

2013 JX 35 radiator fan

I noticed the growling sound from the engine compartment of my JX last weekend.
Brought into my dealer on Tuesday and the problem was immediately diagnosed as a bad radiator fan assembly.
Replaced on Wednesday.
I lucked out, have 99,975 miles on the vehicle with a 100,000 extended protection plan.
Tech mentioned repair would have cost $1,100 plus tax had I not had the warrantee.

Downright hilarious that this part is $514.00 and they want another $600 in labor. Crazy.

This started happening to mine about a week ago. I have 182K on the clock so it's impressive it's lasted this long, especially in the brutal Texas heat. It's a cheap replacement if you avoid the dealer. This is where I purchased my fan assembly.


how didn this work out for you? im in the same boat as you and looking for a solid replacement

Worked out fine. Switched out the fans and the problem went away. Truck cooled without any additional problems. Never had an issue with it overheating in traffic or any other situation after it was replaced.
