Hi, guys! There is a vibration problem. When it is very hot and the motor heats up, the fan turns on, which begins to vibrate very strongly. These vibrations even reach the vehicle interior. I recorded a video in which I attached my smartphone against the steering wheel (smartphone touches the steering wheel) to try to show you the vibrations.
What could it be? has anyone come across a similar one?

Damaged fan blades? Dirt stuck on it or something?

Fans are plastic and could have a crack that is difficult to detect. Had this on an 06 Charger. Have them inspected. Hard to see behind the shroud. When all (hands on deck) fans start on Hellcat, sounds like a Chopper landing.

Check fan motor bearings by spinning fan and checking for any resistance, noise or execessive travel in rotor. Had a simular experience recently on a GMC truck that has the duel fan setup and one was the culprit.

Mechanic's stethoscope or a plain old sounding rod can get you to the issue in most cases...
