The motors are different depending on whether the car has automatic or manual climate control. The manual climate control blowers have a regulator attached for the fan speeds. The automatic one uses a variable resistor and the connection is different.

edit: this is for the 450SL, I'm not sure about the W116.
With best regards


Check out the W114, W115 enthusiast website.
