It's the one at the top to the left. You turn on the blower motor by slinding it to the left. Take a look at "http://www.m-100.org/6point3/frameset.html" for more details.<p>Sveinn Thorsteinsson.<br>Reykjavik, Iceland.<br>W108 280S 1971 211.000km<br>W123 230E 1984 314.000km<br>

Re: 1970 280SE

The blower you see on the right which I understand from a mechanic I talked to yesterday, who does only Mercedes and worked at a dealership in the early 70's, is the standard dealer installed AC. This was the only AC the factory available. The heater blower on the other hand is buried deep in the dash in front of the instrument pannel. You can actually see it if you take the little grill off the intake vent under the windshild wipers on the outside and look from the passenger side towards the driver side. I have been spraying mine with TV Tuner spray trying to remove a possible short without finishing the removal of the whole dash I understand you must do to remove the blower. And don't forget to drain the cooling system first. I tried to get someone to do it but the first refused and the former factory mechanic told me it would be $1,625.00 labor but he didn't do them anymore-too hard on his back. Good luck. <br>: Did these cars have a heater blower motor?
