First, I've just joined this forum. Hello to you all. I'd also like to compliment on the layout of the site, very easy and simple to navigate.
Now, last week I took my mother's 300TE to have the climate control problem diagnosed. Two shops have determined the AC Compressor to be leaking freon like a beast. They've quoted 12 and $1300 to replace (along with neccesary other replacements in the procedure.) I'm trying to find a way around that... looking for any cheaper alternative short of hitting the summer without AC. If anyone has any experience with this please let me know. TIA.
