Gadha's step by step DIY guide to Fan Blower Strap Repair
I wrote the Gadha’s Guide to Fan Blower Strap repair based on my 1995 SL500. I could not find a detailed set of instructions with photos and tips in one place so I wrote this to help others as a way pay back for all the invaluable advice I have received from others in this forum
When the plastic tab that holds the fan blower strap breaks the symptom is a buzzing noise coming from the center A/C vent when you make a fast turn while driving. Plastic gets old and brittle over age so this is a common problem.
DIY takes around 2-3 hours and costs less than $2 but takes a lot of patience and clear instructions. Level of complexity is minimal.
The pictures tell all steps.
Due to limits per post the steps are continued to next post.
