Hi i live in the uk and i own a r170 1996 slk , the photo i have attached is under the front scuttle, or cowl and shows the hole through to the interior fan, blower motor. What i would like to know, should there be some sort of grill or cover here. I have searched google and found no answers, thanks guys for any answers

Hi.

Can you take another photo from a bit father back so we can orient our view with our own SLKs? also - to help us help you - do heed Jeff's advice and fill in your profile. It makes everyone's job a bit easier (including yours!!) and only takes a moment.

Welcome to the forum, by the way, from Surrey.

sorry that my pictures seem to be coming out rubbish but you might be able to see that i have proped up the front scuttle with the screw driver and underneath is the interior fan/blower ,im not sure if there should be some sort of cover or grill to stop leaves or water entering the fan,richard

There is no grill there, just the flap for fresh air. That's why water gets into the cabin so quickly when the seals leak, and why the blower motor goes bad sure to moisture - it's a bad design.
