I smashed the living shit out of my left big toe (dock plate crushed it good). It’s half blue and I had to drain the blood out from under the nail. So I drove the Benz to work the other night so save me the pain of a clutch pedal.

As I’m pulling up to the drop yard, I smell electrical stuff burning. Then smoke starts billowing out of the center vent. The blower motor decided to grenade and damn near caught the car on fire. I jumped out, opened the hood and cut the main fan fuse by the driver shock tower and poured a bottle of water down the cowl inlet. It sizzled like an egg in a hot frying pan.

I dodged a major disaster. Man I got lucky. So now I get the replace the blower motor. And that is somewhat of a task on the W124 chassis.
