Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

2012 IS250. My driver side cooling fan motor is shot. I need to install a new one.. I cant find any info online showing the best way to approach this. Do I have to take off the front bumper and then the radiator before I can install the new motor?????

    I've seen a couple of online video where the whole assembly on some cars can be replaced by removing a couple of bolts and electrical connector and lifted straight up. You may have to remove some shield in the engine compartment. I suppose it's possible the front clip need to come off, but I'd look for a way to keep it simple and avoid that. It may be easier to replace the whole unit than just the motor on the driver side.

    Thanks for the reply... so I've disconnected the motors and unclipped the top 3 clips on the plastic assembly (theres 3 on top and 2 on the bottom it looks like. I also took out the coolant reservoir, air filter and its cover, and the air inlet. So I have some room to maneuver around.

    What shield and what front clip are you talking about???
