Well since my car is out of commission right now and I had already had the blower motor assembly, I decided to replace it since I had alittle bit of time. It was a fairly simple job. The two hardest parts were removing the wiper assembly due to the plastic wiper motor cover giving little clearance to remove, also on the motor assy. I got the fans were alittle bit wider so they were hard to align in the already small area they fit in, I had to adjust the thing over and over until it would stop rubbing inside the housing. Anyhow what I am trying to get at is this is a fairly simple jobs if you have instructions on doing it (If you can change oil, then you can do this). The thing I dont understand is, how can the MB dealer tell me it is 5+ hours labor to do this job when they are experts on this car, when I know very little about MB's and I finished the job in under 2 hours? It just makes no sense. Total cost of this project, 237$ for blower motor and shipping costs and about 2hrs of my time.

Good comments and good work! I like the fact that you "quantified" the technical expertise to do this fix this fairly common mtc task on the W124's! Depending on make and model of car, this can be a very labor intensive task. It is nice to know if mine goes bad, it just a matter of time and parts!
