GXP Overheating

Found the radiator fan broken and of course I can't buy just the fan blade. Any chance someone has a spare laying around.

Thanks for the advice but it's the wife's car and she said she was not going to be happy until it was fixed. So in a attempt to keep my happy life ordered one from gm parts direct $376 with shipping ouch!

Ohh saw this too late. Sorry.

You can get the assembly for an NA from RockAuto for like $50. Then just transfer the fan blade.

So update time. Got my new fan assembly in today and installed. Had to disconnect the small hose on the left and the big hose on the right top of radiator and lost 1/2 gallon. Did the air bleed out procedure temp came up to 215 at park with a/c on max. Took it for a short drive about a block and half and laid into the throttle twice. NOW at park with a/c she is holding at 207.
