ok you are still mixing up the evap sensor and the ambient temp sensor. the evap sensor is located next to the evaporator (hense called evap temp sensor), its purpose is to measure the temp at the evaporator and report it to the aac control panel. basically like mentioned above, if the temp at the evaporator gets too low, it will cut of the ac as to prevent damage to the evaporator.
now the ambient temp sensor reports the outside air temp to the aac control panel.
so if the evap sensor is responsible for measuring the evap temp, why would it be on the outside of the vehicle????
now the evap sensor is NOT located on the outside of the car. i have replaced many of these before, I am a Benz tech, the evap sensor is the same on all MB models and is in the same place, sticking into the heater housing where it measures the evap temp.
now look up to the right into the heater housing, you should see it sticking into the housing. if this si still an issue, let me know
