Lower Mainland BC mechanic needed :o(

Hello all,

I bought my first MB in June as a birthday gift for myself...1999 SLK 230.

I love it, but it has been giving me more problems than I think I should be having.

Most of them are little things I can live with but my most recent issue is a bit more urgent...coming into winter.

The fan/blower/thingy has stopped working. When I turn the dial to turn on the heat, nothing happens, no fan. Everything was working just fine...then one morning...nada.

If it were not for the heated seats, my drive to work in the morning would be frickin' cold.

**I checked the fuses and they all check out fine.

So now I am looking for a good guy to take it to. I could take it to my local dealership...but I can't take the time off work that I would need for the recovery after selling a kidney to pay for it.

Does anyone have any recommendations on either who I can take it to in the Vancouver/Surrey area? Or possibly a fix that I can take care of myself?

Thanks a million for any info you can send my way.
