Cool Disconnecting fans before EuroCharged tuning ?

Good Afternoon

i just bought Eurocharged tuning for my slk 55 amg for 400 $ as best offer
link for who is interested
Mercedes 55 AMG ECU Tune Performance Engine Tuning C55 CLK55 SLK55 | eBay

my question is regarding Disconnecting the fan before doing the update as i understand it consume so much of the battery power and ECU might get corrupted in the process

how to disconnect the fan or would you recommend a battery charger , i really panic about small details as i don't want to do any mistakes

Appreciate your ideas
Amr

Thanks for the heads up. I cant answer your question but was wondering how this deal compares to how Eurocharger prices the same mod for their black Friday special.

Anyone know?

Remove the driver-side engine air intake vent. The connector will be directly below it on the side the electric cooling fan housing. It’s a large connector that disconnects pretty easily by squeezing two tabs together.

Also, I don't believe they had a Black Friday sale last year. I was monitoring the price and never saw it drop. Make an offer on their E-Bay page if you want it.
