mechanic in san francisco

as you may know MB does not service vehicule over 20 years old... (at least in san fran).

so for a 79 450sl, w 20,000 miles where are the experts.... need ignition switch/tumbler replaced, and make the A/C works.

i do the work on the Jeep.... but this ignition is a real PITA.... just came back from the junkyards to take a peek at the setup....

thank you

Hi Michel,

If you don't mind going 25 miles south, take your MB to San Carlos German Auto Works on El Camino Real in San Carlos. They're good. The Caltrain station is a block away, so you can get back to SF easily.
