Post Noob on the forum-help with '85 380SL

Good day! I'm a "new" Mercedes owner, having just acquired a 1985 380SL hardtop. I'm hoping to gather a bit of help with the heating and cooling system. It seems that the blower motor has ceased to function. It started with it going on and off, and a quick jiggle of the key in the ignition would start it up again. Then, that wasn't even working. I have switched out the fuse and that doesn't seem to have helped. I'm thinking that the motor is shot or there might be a short in the wiring somewhere. Anyone have a similar problem? I'd like a bit of advice before I start tearing things apart.

I would be forever grateful if I can figure this out, as the temperature keeps getting higher in South Central Idaho.
