Good day (or evening, depending where you are!). In an earlier post I wrote about a buzzing sound coming from the A/C aspirator grill (located on the front overhead light console in my 1991 420SEL). The dealer diagnoesed it as a faulty aspirator fan (which I already kinda suspected) and told me it would cost $200.00 to replace it. It seems steep for such a small part (it is more of an annoyance than a real problem). My question is: is this a DYI project. I am reasonably handy with tools and electronics (I put together my own computers and I used to be able to take apart, and put back together, the Rochester carbs in my old 1972 Chevy SS Malibu). I know the fan is located somewhere near the passenger air bag controls in the passenger footwell. Can anyone tell me if this is a "do-able" project and if so, where do I find the exact location of the fan? your help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

BTW...this is my 3rd vintage Benz. I only wish I had found out about this board sooner, Thanks!!!
