New to diesel
Hello , I just purchased a 1985 300D yesterday , having only owned BMW e30's in the past , the world of Mercedes diesels is entirely new to me. Mechanically , my new to me , Mercedes is in sound condition , but it needs a few things. Like maybe a new blower motor for A/C , guy I bought it from said it went out a month ago , before thowing down $$$ for a new blower motor (just a quick check has shown me they're not exactly cheep) , is there anything else I should check first? Had a look at the fuse panel , no problem there , so what next? Also , the rubber impact guard on the rear bumper is sagging a bit , looks like it slides on some sort of rail that attaches to the metal bumper , will I have to remove the entire bumper to reattach that? Some of the "clips" that attach to the bumper are broken. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks..................
