    Hi all,

    I have a 2000 W208 230K

    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 needed to be replaced, this failed. They then swapped a hose which cost circa £150 on its own and again this failed to cure the issue. I called the garage to inform them and am now told that this must be the compressor... Now, how much labour is involved in swapping one of these? They are very expensive new so looking to get a used one ideally.

    Thanks for any inputs...
