1986 560sl - an unknown white Connector or Diode in front of radiator

I found a white connector or diode looking piece secured right beside the AC receiver/drier at the passenger side in front of the radiator. It seems broken or starting to break into pieces. I wanted to replace it before totally broken but didn't know what it is and/or what it is for?

Can someone please help to point it out what this white piece is? Thanks!

It is the resistor that lowers the voltage giving the electric cooling fans a hi and low speed... Cooling fan resistor.

Good luck!!!
