W140 evaporator changed?

Done lots of searchig and can't seem to find the answer.

I am the second owner of a 1995 S320 (W140) with 160,000km. I would like to know if the po ever had the evaporator fixed. I am pretty sure that the wiring harness was - it looks solid and new, but I have no idea if the evap ever was changed.

Nothing in the records to indicate one way or another.

I've tried to contact MB Canada, and the dealer that serviced the car before I bought it. Both told me that any previous service records are confidential. It seems that they can't (or won't) run a vehicle service lookup like MBUSA will. My dealer says there is no database that they have access to that would give me any previous service info.

Thanks much,

1995 S320

Ok, this is going to sound crazy but, atached to the case on the r/h side, behind the glove box only higher is the dash harness loom. About the center of the air bag is a torx head skrew attaching the loom (black plastic) to the top portion of the case, the firewall actually curves over it some. That skrew is rarely reinstalled by even the most through techs. You also can look at the harness behind the ACC panel and look at the tie wraps holding the harness to the cross brace, originally they had removable wraps, 9 out of 10 people cut 'em and replace them with standard tie wraps. Same deal with the drain tubes, most people replace the white plastic clamps with tie wraps.

On the l/h side above the gas pedal is this weird 90deg brace holding the case, it has 2 10mm head nuts holding it to the case, lots of 'em left off over the years.
