get a second opinion- Vws are notorious for outrageously expensive parts- but this is in another universe- really, find another, GOOD HONEST mechanic-

Figure around $250 for the fan motor assembly. See rockauto.com for the pricing. I'm not familiar with these cars but even if it took 4 hours at $100 per hour, that's still way under $1200! Sounds shady to me. I'd get a second opinion! HTH -Jim
