Radiator fan air flow direction

Asked by Mar 12, 2016 at 12:04 PM about the 1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 1992 300E and the clutch fan blows air into the radiator and
away from engine. It has no electrical wire.Seems like it should be the other
way. Tried flipping it, but it only fits one

Your right it should be pulling air through. Is this a hydraulic fan? if so it is possible that it has been worked on and maybe they got the lines switched. I'm guessing here as I'm not a Mercedes man but my Jeep has a hydro fan so I know that system.

No hydraulics at all and no electrical either. The serpentine belt is new but according to the Benz manual it is threaded correctly. Everything seems correct that is why I am baffled
