Yeah i got the same problem. Hate to send stuff back. I could just use the old fans as it is the housing that needs replacement. But there must be a wiring solution. The replacement has yellow, brown and white wires all heavy gauge. The factory original has four wires. A red and a tan which are heavy gauge and a red/black and a red white which are a lighter gauge. I would like to thank anyone ahead of time for wiring solution.

Thank You Polsy

I know exactly the information you are requesting. I too have went through this exact issue. The answer to this is that the Beetle comes with the two fan motors, the large one and the small one. In your case as was in mine the larger fan had a pin out with 4 wires instead of the 3. This is because the fan is a 3speed fan motor instead of a typical 2 speed. The brown wire is the negative and the others are all the different speeds, each being a positive wire. Locating one of these fans was a real ordeal. Every place on the internet sales the 3 wire but you really have to look for the 4 wire. I had a technician tell me that this paticular style fan was made for areas of really high temps. The VW part number you are needing is 1C0959455A. Let me know if you need a cheap place to buy one from. Good luck

Thanks for your reply. I went ahead and took out the new 3 wire fan and put the original 4 wire fan into the new fan assembly. The car had front end damage and the old fans worked ok. I just needed the new housing. Of all the many internet sources for this item only one warned they were selling a three wire fan and that it might not work on some cars.
