Default I closed the hood and destroyed my AC condensor fan...

Apparently this is a thing for the 91+ systems. I replaced the relay, closed the hood, and BAM! I removed the bits of fan and disconnected the relay to prevent any further issues. The A/C was still cold on the way home (once I got moving) so I think the condenser is OK but I need a new fan. Apparently this is a design flaw with these cars -- the fan is fine with the hood open or closed but the latch doesn't clear the fan *while closing* the hood.

So.......now I need a new fan and ideally a solution for this stupid problem. I don't want this to happen again.

FCP Euro lists a few Mishimoto fans on their site (10/12/16") but I don't know if these will work for the condenser or if they are meant for the radiator.

Thanks!
