As both previous posts from Benz technicians show, you probably have metal in system from original compressor failure. Many times the flakes of metal do stick in hi-press rubber hose & sometimes in the condensor. FLUSHING doesn't remove this type of debris. The best way to see if there is metal in system is to remove drier & use an exhaust chain cutter to open the drier to see if there is metal from compressor inside of it.
