A bowden cable is a metal cable enclosed in a "tube", just like you get on a pushbike for the brakes. I don't know anything about w123's ( I wasn't even alive when yours was made!) but I'm guessing the cable will go from the back side of the control on the fascia to the heater unit.
Edit: Just wondering, the crap dealer you used, were they on Gt West Rd? As I've found them to be very knowledgeable for mercs my family have had, but oldest we've had was an '89.
Also going a little off topic, funny how the yanks don't consider 123's as classics yet, round here most cars after about 20 odd years are considered classic.
