Question climate control noise when turning wheel?

I have a 1989 260E, the best car I have ever owned! I think I have just found an excellent mechanic and I dont want to alienate him in any way. I just had him replace the blower motor and switch.($750. + labour.) Finally I have heat again!

I have discovered that when turning the steering wheel sharply at slow speeds there is an electrically sounding clicking sound - fairly loud. If the blower is turned off the sound does not occur. If the blower is on and I am not turning the steering wheel sharply the sound is not there. At higher speeds turning sharply the sound isn't as loud and gets louder at slower speeds - possibly because you can turn sharper.

What is the connection between steering and the climate control blower motor?

Thanks in advance for your help.
