Unfortunately the 500TE doesnt want to hold its A/C gas.
It would lose its gas in 2-3 days.
I have tried some Wurth A/C sealer and it is currently working.. But its bugging the hell out of me. I dont like these temporary fixes.
Yesterday, in extreme (well for the UK) heat, the A/C was struggling.. Cool but not as cool as my SEC.
So im thinking its lost some gas.
I want it right so going to have to just get on with it.
I have watched the time lapsed video of a very professional japanese man doing the job, seems a very lenghty job but doable.
Also read some threads on here.
I am going to try and get through the next couple of months and then tackle it when I have more time.
Im getting all the parts together.
1) Evaporator A1248300758
2) Valve Unit A1408300484
3) O Rings A1409970745 & 0845
4) Vac Pods A1248003075, A1248002975, A1248000375, (A1248002675, A1248000275, A1248000975 NLA FROM MB. EDIT: BUT NOW SOURCED ON EBAY)
Any other parts I need?
Any other tips or advice?
