Yes I live in Perth Western Australia and it does get hot here, sometimes 47 degrees so no chance of removing it in our climate. This fan is usually running consistently. Are there any fuses for this unit? or should I look at buying a new fan. It does get hot though on the day it really overheated I only drove about 12 km and just made it into my driveway before the engine shut itself off but the weather was only mild around thirty degrees. Thank you for answering so fast I really do appreciate your input and knowledge.
