The a/c evaperator was a manufacture defect that was off the line of all the SL's from 1991 to 1996, why wasn't there ever a recalll by the company?? I am assuming that Mercedes Corp wanted to soak their coutomers of money on major repair bills. The average price I got to replace this defective part was 3,000 dollars! To replace this item the entire dash board needs to be removed. I come to find out that the later years evaperators were replace with a more durable item. This tells me that Mercedes knew of the problem and did nothing about it for the car owners.
