Question impreza NA same parts as WRX?

My Fiance has an 05 impreza 2.5RS NA Sedan that needs a new radiator fan assembly and the blower fan as sometimes it screeches loudly.
I found a guy parting out an 04 impreza WRX and I am wondering if these parts are the same?

I can't find a radiator fan brand new anywhere that is a direct fit. And the cabin fan seems to be ungodly expensive last i looked on Rock auto at almost $300.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Easiest thing to do is to look up the parts yourself and see if you can match any of these parts between the 2 different cars.

Without actually looking up the parts for you, you are talking abut a 2005 Impreza and a 2004 WRX. These are the same platform and most likely will be a direct swap.

If you go here https://www.subaruparts.com/ you can look up the part numbers yourself.

This way, next time you have a similar question, you can just look it up because now you know where to go.
Once you have the p/n, you can Google it and shop around for the better price.

The majority of the parts on the 02-07 Impreza platforms (2.5RS/2.5i/WRX/STi) are interchangeable. The main exceptions are mostly in the drivetrain, suspension and body categories.

The radiator and fans *should* be the same. The blower motor could be different though, since in the WRX & STi you could get the auto climate controls instead of the manual controls found in the Impreza and WRX TR.

You can use the engine cooling fan and the blower-motor from the 2004 WRX in your 2005 RS.
