C250/1996/2.5L Turbodiesel
First of all I'm new to mercedes benz forums. I have a 1996 blue c250 turbodiesel which up until recently has been fine.
The problem is that when I turn up the dials for hot air, there is only cold air still coming through. I have spoken to a mercedes benz dealer and they said (although I can't remember clearly) there is a mushroom shaped thing under the bonnet which has likely gone wrong. I have no idea what I'm looking for so maybe someone could point me in the right direction?
Also, probably completely unrelated but occasionally when I first turn on the blowers, they don't come on sometimes until I'm actually accelerating... it's like I bumpstart the fans into action by pushing air through the vents by acceleration. Could it be related to the other problem or is it another issue?
Regards, George
