Big Richard; It is at the top of the air box, the big black box in the middle, and behind it between then the box and the dash. It's really a ***** to get to, but it makes all the difference in the world as far as the performance of the climate control. Here's how I figured out mine was bad. A/C compressor died and was replaced. Charged new system with R134. It cooled but not well. It would never cool enough to come off High. I could look under the car and water is pouring out of the evaporator box drain. That says the system is working. So, it had to be an airflow problem. Quick trip to the expert and I knew what I had to do. Ordered an MB Body and chassis manual from 1-800- ForMercedes and jumped in. Took me a 10 hours but I saved $600 in labor. Would I do it again? Yeah, I bet I could do the next one in 9 hours!:p
