RE: A/C Evaporator core problem???
The mid 90's MB's are notorious for being expensive to dig out the evaporator coil, and being an early model aluminum unit -- susceptable to corrosion and failure.
It is buried deep and the dash, HVAC and ducting all needs to be torn out[:(!]
The dealer quote will cause many an MB to be totalled before their time.
Go easy on a recommendation of a stop-leak. You could do more damage to the rest of the A/C system. The sensors and drier come to mind.
I would shop independent MB shops for a mechanic that needs the work and has done it before. That will be the cheapest and safest way.
