I've got a 190e 2.6 with the same problem and I've looked into it. The two fans are in parallel, if only one comes on, the other one is dead. Someone mentioned if you bang on the shaft it might do something. My dead fan twitches when I bang on it. As far as getting it out I was looking at just the other day and it looks like the fans are on a common mount and both need to be removed. Don't quote me on that though. As far as checking it, I unplugged the connector and hooked the battery up to it and did get the good fan to come on. Someday I'd like to bypass the power switch so the fans stay on after the engine is off so stuff under the hood doesn't cook.
