SOURCE: How do I replace the heater blower motor on a 1989 190e

Hello, The blower motor is located below the windshield wiper assembly. You have to remove the plastic cover that below the windshield then remove the wiper assembly, then you will see the blower housing. Remove the screws from the housing then remove housing cover. Look close because some of the screws are hard to see. Once you get the cover off, you will see the motor and there is a metal strap that holds it down. Take a punch or whatever and stick it in hole in the strap and push down. Then the motor will come out.
I hope this helps.

AF3 onepx.gif DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF

Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.

SOURCE: 1989 mercedes 190e blower motor and vents not working properly

Probably two separate problems.
For the blower motor, it may be that the bearings are getting old and so the motor is getting harder to turn and overheating. A way to check is to take the motor out (it will be tucked in behind the glovebox. Pour a tablespoon of motor oil into the vents next to the shaft and work it back and forth to loosen it up. Then put the motor back in and try it. If I'm right, the motor will work normally again. However, this is only temporary--once the oil gets worn off the bearings in a while it will start quitting again. You should order a replacement before it blows your resistor block or (in the worst case) starts a fire. You can get them online, like from

The hood release cable on my 1991 Mercedes Benz 190e is broken. Is there any way to release the hood manually ?

the only other way to open the hood is to go through the front grill (not easy) by removing it or try lying under the front of the car and reach up with a long screwdriver or pry bar and try to trip the latch where the broken cable is-the best and fastest way to fix this though is to get the car to a good body shop.

Can I put diesel engine in 190E year 1989? Thanks for your advise!

you will need to make sure you have every single part that the diesel needed to run in or out of the car then you can put it in as long as the transmission wil work since you dont go into much detail about that its hard to say anything except the one that was behind the diesel will work if not you got some research

I have a 1990 190e , I cannot get the hood to release. I have pulled the cord but it does not pop up to pull the tab and open the hood, it seems like it is stuck or jammed.. any suggestions as to how to...

If you cannot get the hood to release, find where the wire is and pull with a vice grip. If this does not work, then cut the latch off using a sawzall between the hood and the bumper, if that makes sense.

Then, all you have to replace is the latch and cable once it is opened, and nobody would be any wiser.

Good luck on this repair.

I need a blower motor for a 1991 190e Mercedes. How do I tell if it has a dust cover/filter? Also can I buy one with out the fans and just swap the blades?

Open your hood, look under wiper if you see dust filters you have them if not you dont. Its tough to remove the blades without breaking them i dont suggest it.

My air conditioning for my 1989 mercedes 190e 2.6 is not working

first the a/c issue is probably due to low charge. Need to recharge, if you still had R12 in there you need to have it updated to R134A or find someone who has R12 which is tough.
Starting issues are tough to explain without more info but if you mean your starter doesnt turn the motor I would suggest a new battery as you probably have a weak one or it has a bad cell. If your starter turns but it wont start could be the OVP relay, the cold start vale or any number of ignition parts from the coil to the plugs.
