I left my car at a dealer today for other issues, mention this problem as well, but they refused to do it, unless the fan is stuck.

How stupid, when it happens they would have to replace ECU as well.

Will replace it myself.
I asked the service guy at Subaru of Schaumburg the same thing and got the same answer. I questioned him about why they were waiting for a cheap part to fail that also takes the big money ECU with it and he said don't worry because the ECU was waranteed for 8 yrs 80k miles by law. I still don't get it unless the number crunchers did their thing and came to the conclusion that just replacing failures when they arise makes the most economic sense for them.
