Talking 1988 260E in Charlotte,NC

Just brought my first Benz 88 260E last month.I will get some pictures on later this month. I know it has over 200 thousand miles on it. the trip gauge doesn't work It doesn't smoke or burn oil but I think I have a rear seal leak. The automatic trans shifts smooth. To my surprise the sunroof works,all the windows except one in the rear. Not a rip or a tear inside on the burguny leather. Ouside is white no rust or dents. I tried he ac and it did not turn on,the compressor didn't even come on. Today I looked and discovered the wires that plug into the compressor are half torn off. I have about 6" of wire and can't find where it goes Does anybody have an idea where I could trace and find it. I might get lucky and this be the only problem wrong with it. I am the second owner and I have all the service records. I love how it drives until I took it to Tire Kingdom and have a problem balancing the tires. Now I have a shake around 50 mph and it gets worse as I get faster. But all in all I really enjoy this German tank and glad to be here with the best car club in the world
