As far as the auxilary fan, thats how its supposed to work, when the a/c is on, the low speed goes on, if the car starts heating up, then the high speed goes on. As far is it being good, I don't know, the A/C I would say is adequate, but not good as far as a system. It seems to be a little weak. Maybe I need a fan clutch as well, I'm not sure how this effects it, all I know is my car's temp now runs in the middle and my a/c works, so I'm happy.

: The technician at the Air Conditioning place told me that because I have a weak clutch fan i'm not getting the full effect of the A/C. My clutch fan is due to change.
: Also, when the A/C is on the Auxilary fan spins at a low speed. When the engine temp increases beyond a predetermined point, the fan spins faster. Is this good.
: My father's MB however, when you turn on the A/C, the Aux. fan spins at a very high speed and its a 12 blade fan so it makes noise like hell. Now the A/C in that car is great.
