I wouldn't recommend it. The aux fans have quite a few problems as it is. Once the fuse blows on them you will need to perform a wiring modification from the fuse box to the fans. Very common failure. The fans themselves will likely need to be replaced as well. It is inevitable, but the newer ones with the correct wiring are much more reliable.

Thank You for the info, it is at the dealer right now and I had asked my SA to change them out. He was kind of hesitant to do it , as they were not squeeking at the time I dropped it off. My ML is approaching 47k and I thought I would try and have as much stuff taken care of as possible. Thank you again.

WE had the same problem with ours. Have them replace it. Ours became so loud it sounded like it was coming from inside the car.
