Have u looked from the front of the car towards the rad, im sure u will find them to be located on the right hand side of the rad. Why do u need to know?

Hi Fishhead

I own a 1994 espace your being 1995 dont suppose there much difference.

Undo the two nuts retaining the fan situated just above the fan then pull it upwards and move it past the top edge of the front bumper there are no lower nuts to bemoved ..

Now it clear you get to all the wiring connected to the fans all the electrical fault i have had has been either cracked wires or even broken ones unwrap some of the black tap an investigate. good luck might save you a great deal of time . I had the same problem a few weeks ago. kind regards

The most common problem with these fans is the wiring across and below the radiator. If you take the plastic grill off the wiring is obvious. Look for two fuses 20 amp take them out and clean the connectors. Do the same with all connectors across the front. When re-assembling cover all metal areas with vasaline and re-connect. Next port of call is the left lower inner wing, here you will find a multi-plug into the front harness, clean, grease and re-assemble. Whilst you have the front off take time to spray the front bearings of the fan motors...
