Default Fan Switch Location?

I searched the DIY's on this forum and many others.

I see on my parts catalog the fan switch is located somewhere on the radiator on drivers side? I'm under there looking and hell! I don't see it?

Part # 1J0959481A (80254041589) Fan Switch, Thermal/Switch

I changed the green temp sensor on top already, So where is the fan switch located?..rectanlge black three prong switch.
Anyone?

Ok! Nice to talk to myself on here...lol..Hey! Self how you doin? Good You?
But I found the location and I changed it, but not the problem, was a bitch to get too!
Larger fan on Drivers side not kicking in, I purchased the fan control unit module, will show up on Friday, and I might as well change the fan itself, Hell! It's nine years old
better safe than sorry, nice talking to you all...lol

Hey i having the same problem my fans wont turn on at all not even with the a/c on, the car gets overheated like in 10 mins just at idle. i change the driver side fan because i wouldnt turn on when i jumper it. i check the resistance on the ECT and it seems to be working find, now i need to check the Thermal Switch but i cant seem to find it anywhere do you ever found it? and what ended up being the solution for your problem
thank you you can reach me at eperez14569@yahoo.com please or here but i rather email cause i can check it all the time

Thanks for the part numbers, I bought a fan switch from Autozone but they gave me the wrong one, the sensor was square and the connector is a triangle so it didn't fit to plug it. I was thinking of buying it from the dealer tomorrow. Hopefully is not expensive and that fixes the problem

By the way I bought the fan assembly too but I just install the large fan that was bad. Cause is hard taking all those hard to reach screws.
