You need to remove the coolant surge tank, intake tube and box, move the ECU out of the way, remove the headlights for access to the radiator bolts, remove the radiator fan and the radiator, remove the serpentine belt and passenger side wheel and splash shield-remove the front air dam, then unbolt the low and high pressure hoses from the ac compressor, then remove the compressor-it is easily a 3 hour job taking it out and putting it back in.

Support brackets for aircondition


I don't have a pic of this, but I put one of these together yesterday. Do you need to know the location of the bracket or the support bar. It has one on the back of compressor and three on the back of the alternator. Let me know. Maybe if you can describe it or send me pics either on here or on my cell, i can tell you how they all go.

Can be a few things.First is the system charged?If so,try powering up compressor with a jumper to verify that it works and clutch engages.Then try using a jumper on the binary switch plug, if system runs replace binary switch.Remember the system has to have enough pressure to run correctly.Hope this helps.

The climate control screen does not work, when i turn on my heat on, gas level goes down to empty


I assume you mean the car burns more gas when you turn on the heat. The climate control panel also controls the air conditioning system. When the air conditioner is turned on it activates the belt driven compressor thru electrical relays and clutch system. The clutch is located on the compressor pulley, its the secondary outer most ring. The cars engine has to work harder because of the extra load on the engine when this clutch engages. This causes the car to have a higher demand for fuel. The malfunctioning control panel could be activating the airconditioning system unknowingly to yourself. Replace the control panel first, if that doesn't solve the problem check the compressor clutch to see if its engaging with the aircondition system turned to off. If thats the case, check for a stuck system relay.

Mercedes benz airconditioning


You might check the cooling fans on the condenser to see if they are running when the ac is on.If they are not check for blown fuse,or bad cooling fan relay.Do you notice if the ac cools better when running constantly,and the ac is not so cool when in traffic,stopping and going,and running slow?If so the cooling fan,or fans are not working.If the fan fuse and the relays check out fine,then replace the fan,or fans.If I can help any more please ask.roniecon@gmail.com

You have to measure the oil in the old compressor and then add a small amount, usually about 2 oz's this is for a system that has been run, the oil circulates with the refrigerant, so oil is in every component, you really need to consult a factory service manual to come up with the proper amount, it is based on which components you are replacing. Bottom line is what ever you drain out is what goes back in + a small amount, if you get it wrong you can end up with a frozen up compressor or a system that does not cool correctly.
