i have a mk3 jetta vr6 and the fans both started squeeking then sounded like the bearings shot and the fans wobbled loose and there was smoke coming from them. i was wondering if the fan setup is the same for all mk3s? like if i could put one on from a 2.0 jetta or golf?

No, that fan motors for the VR's are much larger. The 2.0 fans are 250W while the VR fans are 450W. Also check to make the the plastic rings that are fitted around each fan blade have not broken and jammed the blades. My old Mk3 2.0 had this issue. I was about to replace the fan motor until I discovered the broken ring pieces when I tilted the fan shrowd back away from the rad.
