Blower Strip fuse near false firewall in separate holder Black 1" X 2", opens side ways VOILA! strip fuse inside. in front of the masster cylinder.

Could be bad even if it looks good.

X2. For some reason my local MB dealer couldn't get the fuse, but the local WV dealer had 'em in stock.

I located the strip-fuse per your advise....indeed..it developed a hair-line crack...looked all over for a replacement...no dice...so I replaced it with a standard inline-fuse-holder & 30A fuse...my blower-fan is working now....thanks again for your help guys!

Lead, it would be advisable to install a new 30-amp strip fuse rather than a Rube Goldberg fix. Look online. They should be available because I bought several a couple of years ago. It's surprising that your local MB dealer didn't have them, or couldn't get one for you. You may want to call another MB dealer and have them mail you one, or two. The strip fuses cost less than $2.
