In the last few weeks, I've noticed that the blower motor in my '89
560SL has begun to squeak, primarily on low speed. It first started to
squeak softly and intermittently, and then more as time passed. Two
days ago, the blower stopped working completely, and I noticed
immediately that the fuse was blown. I replaced it, and it's working
again, but squeaking more than ever now, and even on high speed. It
sounds to me like the motor is beginning to bind up and is now drawing
more power than it should, which is causing the fuse to blow.
I guess it's time for a new blower motor, but I don't know where the
current one is located, or even if it's something I can replace
myself. I'd like to save some money on this repair, and if it's user
accessible without the help of a mechanic, i'm ready to try.
Can anyone tell me how to find my blower motor, and also, recommend a
place to get one inexpensively?
Thanks in advance.
