I have a 1997 S420 with a blown blower motor. I got a new assembly on
ebay really cheap. I would like to know where it is located. I think
its underneath alot of stuff. I know there is the plastic cover over
the carbin filter that is like 3 feet wide. Can I get some help on the
Also, is this a typical repair for these cars. feedback please?
Under the long cover, remove 6 screws and a couple of vacuum lines. It is under
the pass side.
But........ the blower motor RARELY is bad. 99 out of 100, it is the blower
regulator on top of the
motor that goes south. AND it goes south because people NEGLECT to replace the
vent filter that sits
on top of it. The filter is plugged, air flow stops, and the regulator overheats
and frys from not
getting cool air flow. Lack of maintenance will cost you. Like the old Fram
commercial: "You can pay
me now or you can pay me later."
Well, this was a used car that I purchased last year and I do not use
it much (long drives and weekends mostly). I know that it has that
carbon filter cause my cadillac has one. Thanks so much for the
information. Will work on it as soon as possible and report back.
