I had the exact same thing done to my E320 T (1995) and it costed me about $2000 (labor is extremely cheap here). Although I agree is a very high risk job. I saw my car stripped down to metal on the inside (everything was taken out: dash, center console, seats, airbags, wiper motor, everything!). A very sad and depressing sight. The cooper evaporator, according to the mechanic, is more efficient than the original M.B. part.

The interesting thing is that my car had only 10,500 original miles on it (two-year old when the job was performed). The mechanic told that the original evaporator was damaged since new (showed it to me) and that this problem often happened with M.B.s The dealer refused to cover the repair since the warranty here is only one year-period.

Good luck!
