260E A/C question
Hello everyone!! I finally decided to try and have my A/C fixed (which hasn't been operational since I bough the car). The local shop told me that it still uses the old R12 gas and that it needs to be converted to R134 first ($600) before they can even troubleshoot the problem. Why is this change so expensive? What usually fails on early w124's A/C wise? Can't they fix the problem by injecting the dye into the system and locating the leak and fix it and fill it with R12?
I am so confused.
