Excellent replacement part. Repairing my '05 CLK500, I like to use OEM factory parts when possible, but a blower on an 11 y/o car...couldn't see spending $300+ so decided to try the TYC 700190 for less than $70. The removal of the motor/fan on the TYC is easier (two screws on the back, under the rubber plugs) versus prying out 3 plastic retainers on the OEM fan - you need to remove it so that you can install the fan regulator (which I also replaced) And for $70, I can buy almost 5 of them for the cost of the OEM part. It's quiet and blows as much or more air through the vents. Highly recommend. Will update if I have issues.
