115 chassis 240d heater fan motor
Hi- does anyone know where I can find a description of accessing the heater fan motor on the 115 chassis cars. Mine stopped working, I have several repair manuals with no details about this at all. My fan motor stopped working suddenly, and might just need the motor brushes replaced. Also, my car no longer has air conditioning as I removed the system since it did not work for years anyway. I have seen mention of a fan motor resistor being a part of the switch that controls fan speed, and if that is the problem those are quite expensive- so I wondered if anyone has substituted a non-factory switch to control the heater fan operation, and if the resistor is essential or how it can be worked around using say a non factory 3 position switch or a rheostat or something that I could probably find for $10 or so- thanks!
