mazda charges $30 for it. it's the thermoswitch. you can drive without it. however jump your fans, it's what turns them on. or if you are getting daring, build the MS fan circuit and have the MS control your fans


im sure a few guys here have them.

for MS to control it you have to build a little circuit.

rockauto.com has an excellent web-based parts catalog with part pictures that I've used to identify all kinds of OEM parts. The prices are pretty good on the knock-off stuff ($35 for a fog-light assy that Dodge wanted $170 for my work truck).
