The compressor on my SL has started to whine and I have managed to obtain a replacement.
My question is, is this a job that I could do myself, or is it one that is best left to my local garage ?
I am fairly competent on mechanical things.
My R230 350 SL has got a noisy whine coming from the AC compressor, so I guess it must be the bearing that`s gone.
What is the best solution to this without going to MB for a (Expensive no doubt) new one.
Can somebody recommend a place that could rebuild it, or supply a...
I am wondering if its possible to fit the new late 2008 type compressor onto a 2007 model S500.
My local guy says yes but I know the clutch is different. I also remember when you carry out the telematic update you have to tick which type of compressor is installed.
Anyone have this issue?
I am contemplating changing the ball joints myself, quite handy with a spanner and fancy a go.

My newly bought C320 Coupe has got a whining noise that starts when engine warms up, stays on low revs but disappears on higher .

Hi - can anyone give me some pointers on what to look for when I buy an air compressor. It is to run a small piece of machinery that requires a 30 litre/minute supply.
It will be used inside so needs to be quiet and electric I guess.
Anything I should look for? Just go to machine mart...

For the past few weeks, I've been battling with a local garage looking into my AC issues... When the system is charged, it lasts for 2-3 weeks before the AC no longer works / coolant is lost.
The garage used a dye and identified initially some seals that...
I need a small but powerful air compressor.
It won't be used to power any tools but will be used for blasting dust out of nooks and crannies.
Adjustable pressure and a long hose would be ideal.
The less expensive, the better. :thumb:
My car 2007 GL320CDI
I just replaced my ac compressor, expansion valve and the receiver/drier due to not
cooling low pressure was at 60-70 psi and high pressure was at about 125.

I'm going to be extending the garage and will be doing some framing/stud work then cladding the outside. To make the job as easy and quick as it can be I am looking at getting a framing nailer. It seems the air option seems to offer the best performance/price ratio. This works well as I can...

Maybe someone here can help me in understanding how often it is normal to hear the air pump on a W212 Estate.
In the past I don't remember even hearing it but after the last service 29k miles, I don't know why but I hear the pump. I hear it sometimes in the morning and then...
Just bought a Merc. SLK 200 compressor 2007, 184hp. The front brake pads are well worn and the disc vents are badly clogged up. Discs should be O K but the pads need to be replaced, any recommendations welcome. ,
As posted earlier I have recently purchased a ML270 it has a couple of problems.

I'm considering adding a compressor to my tool collection, for use with nailers, staplers, sanders, some inflation, etc...
It needs to be fairly portable, and ideally easy to maintain. Budget, possibly upto £200, although it would be nice if that included a tool or two.
