Screen will only prevent/avoid future problems...
Mike, if the cause of the C-class problem is anything like the M-class, adding the screen on the intake vents will only prevent future snow from getting in near the fan and melting, then freezing there. It doesn't fix the problem once it's occured, unless they've also ensured that all the melted snow/moisture is removed from inside the ducts and around the fan.
At least this is what it took for my car (ML320), plus they plan to replace the fan to prevent future failure since it has been sitting in a pool of water, which may later rust the bearings (according to the tech...)
