Can anybody identify this heater please?
« on: April 06, 2009, 10:20:32 PM »
Hi ;

I found this buried in a pile of parts I received with a 190SL I bought. I'm assuming the owner may have watned to hook this into the 190SL's system but found it didn't fit under the seat.

I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me what kind of MB this came from (I'm assuming its from a MB anyway).

Thanks!

This is similar to the heater I have in my 170 Da OTP. There are a few pieces missing. Stephen

Thanks so much for your replies everybody!

That looks very close to mine. The construction is slightly different: on mine, the heat can only exit the bottom though , not the top. It exits via the smaller round holes and the two wider slots in the hex-shaped bottom (the motor still runs BTW). This low-profile construction does make me think it was specifically built for under-seat placement.

I heard the following from a shop in Germany: ' this special heater was used in 170ies and 300 models as additional heater for cold countries used under the RH driverseat.'



Regards,
Klink

Yes, you are right. This is a Bosch after-market under-seat heater which was used as a complementary heater for taxis and estate cars. It was very popular in Sweden because of its high efficiency and small dimensions. The air outlet should be on top though. It can be pointed backwards or forwards.

The Bosch number is 0 141 400 001 for 6 V, ... 401 ... for 12 V. The heater's capacity is equivalent to 1500 W and the fan consumes 20 W.

Thanks, that helps a lot!

Since I have no use for this heater, I'll sell it on eBayl; any idea what these are worth? I only know the value of parts for my model.

Thanks!

I had one of these auxiliary heaters in my 59_300d  "Adi"  with divider glass window.
the car was previously chauffer driven and the heater was under the driver seat, with the vent shooting under the seat and divider aimed at  the back seats.   

It had a temperature control on the front panel....and the water lines went through the firewall into the engine compartment and tied into the main heating lines.

I have had exactly this heater in a 220 Ponton below drivers seat to heat the rear compartment. I have seen also DB service instruction to fit these accessory in the car, that means it was an official extra equipment. In the next days I tray to find the instruction for the forum files.

Hans
Perfect is just good enough, try to do it.

Finally I found the Daimler Benz fitting instructions in between all the documents I have collected over the last 30 years. I am nearly sure that I have also the same instructions for 170S and 220 W187 cars, but I can't find them.

Thanks very much Hans for taking the time and looking for those documents.  It sounds like you have quite the collection of documents!

Kind Regards
