I am a fairly new owner of a C220 cdi, v reg. I cannot find a reference in the manual, as to why the fan continues to work for a few minutes after switching off.

It seems to only do this in cold weather.

The other day I worried a pedestrian after I had parked because the noise was accompanied by a small amount of steam from underneath at the drivers side front.

Does anyone know what this is? :?

You seem to be talking about the radiator fan. Many cars have electric radiator fans which are controlled by a thermostat which meaures the temperature of the coolant. The fans on cars so equipped often run after the engine is shut off. I've noticed this with a lot of VW's and Audis.
