2001 Mercedes Benz CLK320 Base 6Cyl3.2L - Engine
Heater fan not working on it's own
Fan will run when manually turned (to get it started), with your hand for the time the car is running. Will not go on it's own after car restart. Temp works if I select the defrosters but no fan. The recycle button is on and I cannot select any other. Check engine light comes on periodicall for a few days then goes off. (Something else, I think)? Shop wants to replace heater motor/blower for almost $700.00. I'm hoping it's something I can do. Trying to find a repair manual but no luck. Thanks for any help.
Sincerely,
Kat

    The repair manual for your vehicle is hard to find. Did you already check the eBay or http://www.alldatadiy.com/about_alldata/index.html You can also use the Find a Shop feature of AutoMD to see a list of shops near you with their address, telephone # and labor rate per hour. You can call them and inquire how much for a replacement of a heater motor/blower.

    Thank you for your suggestions. Lots of manauls out there just not too many of 2001. I did find an electronic manual on E-Bay for under $25. I think I will have to go that route but I really wanted the old fashioned paper type. Can't see spending the $175. - $225. for one tho.

    Does anyone have an inkling of anything other than heater motor/blower, or is that pretty much the general concensus.

    Thank you much. Have a wonderfully good autumn day!

    Heater Unit is very expensive, I would blame to Climate Control Unit to be replaced. . Your model 2001, I doubt the Heater Unit cause problem. Most common problem with Climate Control Unit. Most drift mechanics use his cross fingers to try to install both units one or other and charge you both. You must visit Benz Dealership to trust this equipment problems.
