Typical MB engineering. Complication for the sake of complication. You
get the expense of an electric fan and attendant wiring & sensors AND
the maintenance headaches of a rubber belt drive. Fabulous design.
Yes it is that engineering that makes my 26 yr old 300SD such a
fabulous car. Its ahead of its day even now compared with jap crap and
such. I wasn't aware that changing a fan belt would cause "a
maintenenance headache". Maybe for the mechanically inept...
