Yes,just cut and splice. I replaced one of my WS fans with an original replacement. It came with a plug, but FW cut the plugs off and used butt splices.

Those fans are going to be 12VDC. It sounds like you bought a 120VAC fan!

Just because it has a plug, doesn't mean it's 110V. A 2 prong appliance plug...probably it is, but because the plug wasn't specified, could have easily been a cigarette lighter plug.

^ Ah, I bet that's the kind of plug he's referring to. Right, if it's "cigarette lighter" plug, cut the wires and splice as the the fan is 12v.

Handy plug with extra wire to save ...damn Im a horder lol . There may be a fuse in cig base to protect light gauge wiring but OEM fan supply is likely be fused at 5ish amps for the fan wiring your replacing.
Besides saving the cig plug as a horder you could create a power supply and known ground for testing interior 12v systems. You can loose a lot of time chasing a problem when you loose a ground in a daisy chain.
