If I understood my tech correctly, he said if the compressor had not failed, the MB bulletin he read rcommended changing several items (sorry, I can't remember which ones, but he said it was not necessary to replace the compressor if it hadn't failed) and flushing/evacuating the system with r12 several times before final evacuation and filling with r134a. His ballpark estimate for repairing the leak and doing the conversion was about $400. He said he has done a number of cars following this procedure with no problems. Any input or comments would be appreciated. (BTW, he charges a little under $40/lb for r12).
