Am I right in saying that the thermostat is positioned at the bottom of the radiator?
I don't know if things have changed but thermostats are more usually positioned at the engine end, of the top hose


Can I take the connector off and link the pins together to see if the fan works ok?
Yep removing the connectors from the switch on the Rad and shorting together is the way I use for testing the fan motor.

Or if you have it turn on the Air Con, the Rad fan should come on pretty well straight away.
