Exclamation Radiator Cooling fan issue THREAD

I haven't had a chance to look at it but anyone have any suggestions? It appears its either off balance or coming loose.

Radiator Fan Rattle. Help!

Is anyone having this problem or know a solution? I haven't had a chance to get in there because work has been crazy but I was hoping someone else has had experience with this. I've only had my renegade about a month and kept her clean and out of the mud so what could make this start happening?

Something has come loose. It should be still under warranty. Take it in before something punctures the radiator.

It just might be the fan motor itself. If that's the case, it's an easy fix for the dealer.

Let us know what the problem was.

Mine is loose and the part is on back order, It makes a flapping if idling and gets louder every day.
