Not eBay but worth a drool!
1988 Mercedes 560 Sec For Sale | Car And Classic
The old “air con needs regassing” excuse. Right and you didn’t spend the £100 to get it re-gassed. I hate it and it puts me off when sellers lie in adverts.
£100? Half that around here. Agree generally but my last car really did 'only' need a regas!
I do like the 560SEC, great cars. Here's mine. I probably have not driven it in 2 years.
And here is probably the best one. Some will have seen it in the metal. Most know who owns it.
Teego that linked image doesn't work FYI
£20k ...and they haven’t paid £50 for a regas of the aircon ...hmmmmm
methinks it may need something expensive.
Like others have said it always makes me laugh when a seller says a/c needs a regas. It also puts me straight off the car.
It either has had a regas and lost it again due to other issues or their are other issues and it doesn't need gassing at all just has other bigger issues.. Or does in fact just need a regas and the seller has been too lazy to get it done.
Either way it is not good and a massive negative point selling a car to most potential buyers. If the seller has been too lazy to get it regassed then what else have they been last with?
I got a couple of cars regassed this year with ATS via a Groupon deal for something silly like £38!
Nice but I just don't think the monoblocks suit it. For that price I would want a set of Oz's or some other nice period correct boots.
Very nice 30 year old period piece for £20k
A gem for someone, but put on the right period wheels and tyres.
Are you keeping it?
Well it is a great car,it is one of the cars I wish I owned,but the advert is so typical,this car has wanted for nothing in my ownership it says and then a little further down the aircon needs gasing and the seat belt presenter does not work,followed by I only want 20 grand for it.
It's on the chopping list along with several dozen other cars. Whether i'll get to it in 2020 is anyone's guess
Like the wheels.
Might the SEC still have R12, in which case conversion to R134 may be more than just a regas?
As above depends on the refrigerant gas required.Its likely the original system would have been filled with CFC R12. In the event its never been converted its not just a simple regas. A conversion may require a system flush , new fittings, seals, dryer and compressor oil among other things.
That might be overkill. As long as you do a flush and change the o-rings and add the correct oil. You should be okay. No reason to replace the compressor. Problem with R134a conversions on the W126 however is that it does not work that well, at least here in Texas. In the UK, it will probably be perfectly fine.
