Radiator Cooling Fan Noise

The Cooling fan makes a terrible noise when the A/C is in auto when the transmission downshifts, and when the car is in traffic and gets hot. I suspect it is one of the cooling fans (the one toward the passenger side of the front), but the noise occurring on downshift has me perplexed. How do I confirm? Can I do this job myself? How much would it cost to have a shop do the work?

The noise I have is more on the driver's side. if i put my finger on the center of the fan, there's no more noise. when fan is off, I am able to push it back a bit.. meaning it's not tight in it's center..

Is this its bearing? could the fan be tightened?

Cause what you guy are talking about above is the condenser fan, this is the driver's side fan.. Do I still need to buy that motor?

Radiator fan is number 6 up on that map.

My options are to either buy an OEM motor, or an aftermarket fan assembly (doorman or VDO). Original motor will be 80 bucks higher in price.

Which is better to do, replace motor only in OEM, or buy the whole thin in aftermarket?

I will buy OEM in this case, I don't trust aftermarket too much especially when it come to cooling system.
