There is a transmission class action but you have to have bought the 2015 renegade new to qualify... A while back I was contacted by a lawyer researching the fan issue for a class action but have not heard or seen anything since.

Can Buy 68360299AA but make sure has heat shield

Folks! Can't believe this entire thread goes without mentioning which replacement fan is best to buy, or which has the heat shield!

I found on ebay a listing which clearly shows the labeling and P/Ns for one with the heat shield. It is a Mopar Mahle P/N 68360299AA, but it must be a later version. Note the date on the box label, it is from Aug 2019, so maybe there is a date range when the fans come with heat shields (like after a certain build date).

A friend tried to order one and many of them out there DO NOT have the heat shield. She is now having to return the replacement fan, what a hassle!

Looks like can order 68360299AA but have to call/verify has the heat shield. See also attached photos.

Ebay Search Ricambi Radiator 68360299 and you may find similar or same listing. Or just search ebay for 68360299 and scroll through pics until you see one with heat shield (take off the AA for better search).

Just wanted to say thank you all for your information you posted on here. I just hit the 70k mark and my fan is done for. I almost ordered the older fan but with you guys I got the right one off ebay!

Unfortunately it sounds like the bushing of your fan motor has worn out most likely due to lack of lubrication. I also think that the fan assy is out of balance which caused the wobble. When the motor starts to wobble, the brushes ( there are 4 of them) makes intermittent contact with the armature. This causes sparks to be produced. When there is spark there is heat. The brush assy gets hot enough to actually cause the circuit board (that holds the brushes) to burn. This spells the end of the fan motor. FCA really should redesign the motor so that ball bearings are used front and back and that the blade assembly be balanced. Doing this will extend the life of the entire assembly. Also it will help keep Tony from being resurrected from the dead.

Please see my posts regarding preventive maintenance for this fan assy. Although I must admit that it might not work 100 percent but at least it is worth trying. Let us keep an eye on this issue.

I did the install myself it's not bad just not a lot or room. Save your money and try it yourself. It took me about an hour.
