Occasionally a part will require a VIN, engine number or production date. A chassis number or a VIN are the same thing, and are usually found on a sticker/decal on the left/drivers door post - Usually the last six or seven digits are required (A672152) and the item will either fit to or from that number. The engine number is usually stamped onto the engine block, always in a different spot. Having trouble finding your (Mercedes) engine number, please email us or call us with your VIN and we will be happy to look it up. The production date of a vehicle is also found on the drivers door post - some parts fit up to a month/year (-06/1996) and others, from a month and year (07/1996-).
Did you know? An E-Class (W210) Mercedes Blower Motor Regulator:
If the regulator fails, which is usually due to overheating, the blower motor fan will not operate faster than +- 50% power. Mercedes updated the regulator to improve its reliability, but the redesigned regulator requires the installation of a new blower motor, regulator and mounting bracket - usually a set back of anywhere from $500.00 to $800.00 in parts. The old-style regulator is only compatible with the old style blower motor, and is no longer manufactured. The blower motor regulator may be replaced with this much less expensive W140 S-class blower regulator, provided that the E-class wiring harness is re-attached to this S-class regulator, and no wires are cut - use bullet and spade connectors to jump the connection.
Change your cabin filters regularly will extend the life of your blower regulator!
It is important to change the cabin filters regularly, because if air is restricted from circulating into the blower motor compartment from a dirty clogged up cabin filter, this will cause the blower motor and other components such as the blower regulator, blower resistor or ac final stage unit to overheat and this will be an expensive repair, which could have been avoided by replacing the cabin filter/s.
