W126- Replacing an Aircond Compressor - School Holiday Benz DIY project
I was at my inlaw's house today( in Kundang near Rawang)when we decided to carry out this small DIY project. Kids were having good times playing with their cousins and wives were doing some cookies/baking project , leaving us the fathers with nothing much to do.(Btw my inlaw is a trained mechanic, he does a lot of services for Japs and Protons cars, but never worked on any Benzes before). Instead of sembang kosong, I ask him to check on my car aircond , ( my aircond kinda acting up lately, not cold at all), after few diagnostic procedures, he recommends me to change the aircond compressor ! ( I guess all cars have similar aircond systems in principles).Oh ya the compressor looks really bad already larr, so its about time to get it replaced , after all this is for DIY fun.So I told him that I wanted to buy the parts and use his toolings to replace it myself-ie testing out my DIY skill lah.. , but he insisted on doing it together bcoz :
1. Its not going to be easy for a beginner like me,
2 . He wanted to learn about benz.

So he asked his partner to get one unit from Jalan Ipoh ( a recond unit - RM400). Began the interesting journey .. ( I will post the detail howtos later .. as for now only photos, so sorry, gotta prepare some paperworks-proposals) ) . DIY is all about fun, its not about money, really.- btw ,my aircond is back to normal now.
