I have to do this job on my 1987 300D within the next few weeks.

If I remember, he had some really big hi-res pictures linked in, and that might take a lot of effort to transfer.

I would be willing to use what you have as a reference, and write a new procedure - waiving all rights to the information. I can take all new pictures - and I have the hosting space.

In fact, I can convert whatever is created into a PDF file for easy download.

If this sounds like the right approach, let me know and we can exchange E-mail addresses by Private Message.

Sure Ken, sounds good. I have slated June 9th and 10th for the Blower Motor project in my garage at home. I figure I'd burn a couple of vacation days and do it on a week day in case I need any unforseen parts.
Right now, all I have is a text only step by step process I copied from a previous post on this subject. I have the new motor shipping to me the first week of June.
Murray Motors (our local Mercedes dealership) will only quote me an estimate of between 8 and 15 man hours of labor at $75 per hour.
I look at it like this, even if it takes me 2 full days, I am making (saving) over $500 a day!
But that 15 man hour labor estimate from supposed "professionals" is pretty scary for a "handy with the tools" but still a novice guy like me. That's why I am trying to get every piece of info I can, and I sure appreciate all the help and advice I can get! Thanks in advance everybody!

Anybody have the pictures and instructions for the blower install? It should be in the DYI section! It is such a common issue for us w124 people.

I received the materials from Viper300E and replaced the blower motor a couple weeks ago. Followed the written instructions and took pictures along the way. My pictures are not the greatest, but I guess they help to get the point across. I also have a few amplifying remarks to make the instruction set clearer.

Hopefully I can find time to put this together this weekend and post a link.

The hardest part of the job for me was the removal of the "squirrel cage" fans on either side of the old motor and installing them on the new motor. No way you're going to do that by hand. I had to bend a special fixture out of bar steel and use a 12-ton shop press.

The actual disassembly and access to the blower motor is simple and can be done with normal hand tools. But you will be better off with some tips on exactly how things come apart so you don't break anything.

The car sure is more of a pleasure to drive now........

Ken, didn't get the chance to R&R my blower motor. Would love getting the info you have from the material I sent you, especially the pictures! I bought the motor with the new cages, I suppose that will be easier?
Talk to you soon!

Good work finding it. When I click on the pictures to make them bigger I get a "not found" notice. Is there a way to do it or just use a magnifying glass? Thanks
