One of the two aux fans on my 124 went this time last year. When I removed the fan for replacement, I noticed a ton of road junk caught between the fan motor and the AC condensor essentially restricting any airflow to the vents of the motor. I believe that this ultimately caused the failure.

Perhaps periodic cleaning of this vital area could save someone $131 and a few knuckle scrapes.
