Boston area newbie

Found the site looking for an answer to a HVAC problem in my 2003 C240, and found some very relevant information from a couple of years ago. Looks like a good site--knowledgeable people helping each other out.
I'm an old mechanical engineer, spent a lot of time under cars back when I had a garage to work in, but now have to work in the street in front of the house--no fun in Boston for about half the year, especially now with 8in of snow.
Brief general desc of my current problem: clicking sound under dash when defroster is actuated. Quoted $1600 to fix--"Gotta take out the whole dash, 2 days work." Huh? Time for a new Toyota, I think...
Mercedes has not fulfilled my modest expectations with this car. Reliability is not up to expectations at all.
