C230 replace noisy aspirator fan

97 C230 MB.
How to replace the noisy aspirator fan? This fan is inside assembly below the rear view mirror behind the dome light assembly (and moon roof switch lever).

I can pop the dome light plastic cover off. But unable to remove the dome light assembly to get to the aspirator fan assembly. Can you please tell me how to find the instructions and possibly the sketch on how to remove/replace this aspirator fan?

Dealer told me this aspirator fan is to draw air for temperature sensing for automatic control of air-conditioning. Can I just disconnect this aspirator assembly and not use auto temperature control of Air Conditioning?

Hi, you should post this in the forum specific to your car, that's the W202 forum under sedans (not the W202 forum under AMG cars however). Your question has been addressed several times there and it's well documented. Good luck.

I used to have a '99 and if you have the rotary knobs (as mine did) it doesn't matter at all if you leave it disconnected, but the auto system I'd guess requires it tho I'm not sure.
