Re-Sealing A/C compressor

Hi everybody,
I need some information about an A/C compressor because even if is still working fine I notice a small trace of oil near the clutch and I suspect that I have a gas leak from the shaft gasket. My car is a CLK 430 1998 and compressor is NIPPODENSO do you know where I can find a gasket-kit in Europe or some place in the USA able to send it to me? Many thanks to all because if not I have to go to MB dealer and I loose (an) arm and (a) leg for a rebuilt compressor......

Very few places reseal nippondenso compressors successfully. I doubt you will be any different.

Some oil residue is normal at the front shaft. Are you low on refrigerant? Leave it alone untill you are sure you have a leak.

Here's an article on one of the Porche boy's Nippondenso rehab. FWIW.
