1997 Mercedes-Benz SL600 ProblemsLeaks at Compressor, Hose Manifold, or Evaporator Core May Cause Poor AC Performance
A refrigerant leak may develop from one or more of the following AC components: AC compressor, hose manifold for the compressor, or the evaporator core. The loss of refrigerant can cause poor AC performance. Our technicians tell us that proper leak diagnoses should be performed in order to determine the cause of any refrigerant loss.
Due to exposure to the sun, lenses for head lights become opaque (cloudy or hazy). This reduces the effectiveness of the lights. Plastic polishes can improve the clarity of the lenses, but replacement of the lamp housings is the only way to regain the full intensity of the lights.
Leaks may develop from the differential cover and/or seals on high mileage or older vehicles. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit if these leaks are addressed.
