A/C fan speed regulator replacement on 2000 E320 with pictures

After mentally preparing myself to repair/replace the A/C fan speed regulator, reviewing the excellent threads on the matter, I removed the blower assembly and to my amazement found out the blower/regulator is completely different to the pre MY 2000 vehicles. I was thrilled to see there was no soldering at all but merely a bolt-on/plug & play part replacement.

I proceeded to call the dealer who quoted $270 for the part. Checked some of the online resellers and ordered it from Autohaus AZ for just under $148. Very satisfied with their service.

I enclose pictures from the parts. The removal procedure has already been posted and the steps to follow do not change and start by removing the glovebox.

Cheers.

If you remove the panel below the glove box, a couple of screws and the cover to the blower from below, another couple of screws, you don't even have to remove the glove box. I did the whole deal in less than one hour.

You're absolutely right. I did an exploratory disassembly and cleanup first that included checking the cabin air filters, and charcoal filters too.

Cheers.

Is the fan speed regulator the same as the blower motor regulator?

Yes. The fan in question here is the climate-control blower.

the '98 job is just as easy

only the parts are different, there is an excelllent DIY write up for working on a '98 at MBworld, can't miss it and the job is easy, and yes the blower regulator and fan speed is the same thing, just different wording.

Can anyone tell me how to get the glovebox out, it seems to be stuck to/glued to the wood trim line. I've pulled the front screws, the two in the floor of the glovebox, and the two door stops. Is there a screw in with the light? I think I loosened one in there, by touch.
Still the glovebox wants to take the whole dash with it, including the airbag part of te dash. HELP!
Thanks!
