I'll be awaiting such a photo, myself. I've seen many 617's from '82-'85 and none of them had the temperature switch that you refer to.

Can you not read or something? LUVMBDiesels and MBeige both have the 100C aux fan switch, they both have a W123 diesel. Why would they lie about it??????

Geeeeeeezzzzzzz, you don't have to be a know it all.

MBeige cited the manual for the W123, which has every possible combination............including the gassers and the models prior to the turbo versions.

LUV refers to a switch on the thermostat housing, but this switch operates the blower fan in the passenger compartment.

So, while I never claim to be know it all...........I do know a few things.

The t-stat housing on my '85 300D-T (CA version) has a temp sensor in it but I don't know if it's for the temp gauge, the aux fan, or something else. With the key switch on but the engine cold and not running, I tried grounding that sensor's wire. Nothing happened. None of my manuals say what that switch is for.

I'm betting that it's the same as the '84. The switch prevents the blower from operating when it's below 50C...........so it doesn't freeze you to death.

Jeremy, does your car get to 100C in traffic. Could you see if the aux fan comes on without the a/c being on? I bet it does.

Well I bet MB doesn't design a car that overheats if the A/C isn't on. Thats just doesn't any make sense.

This brand is not infallable. I am still searching for the water separator in the fuel system. Plus the warning system that water is present. Too expensive to have them ? Perhaps it's a built as no other kind of thing.
