Hey guys I'm fairly new to the realm here.. I've got a 2007 RHD, I recently heard a kinda squeakish knocking, went to the mechanic and he told me that the radiator fans need to be replaced, finding them here is a hassle any suggestions on where I can purchase online..... Much appreciated! :frown

Welcome! Is it certain that the problem is the radiator fans rather than the more usual one of the coolant pump going bad? Suggest getting a secon opinion from another mechanic.

Even if you're not very mechanically inclined, you can try this: engine running, turn on air conditioning, open the hood and try and listen for the noise you reported, focusing just behind the radiator where the fans are. They should be spinning and if they are indeed the problem you should hear the noise coming from the fans. Of course don't put your hands or anything else near them.

How likely is two fans having a mechanical fault (bearings?) at the same time? I'd check the electrics circuits first.
