C220 questions

Hi,

I have a C-220 SW (about 2005).
I have enjoyed a lot the car for already 200000 km, and the car is vbehaving quite OK, although I had some problems that I am almost sure it did happen by misshandling by the officila service here in Spain, when I repaired the car for some small issues.

Up to now the main issues were just the complete loss of the oil in the gearboss (2 days after taking the car from the car service), and the driver door lock (one week after this). After that the driver door is not closing with the classical sild sound, but it looks thst something has been wrongly fixed...)

From this time onwards everything is running OK (although the fuel system had to be refurbished).

Currently I have two or three issues that I would like to fix myself if possible. Here it goes:

Lately I had to refill the refrigeration liquid once or twice in te last year, and also the external temperature is showing a high temp. as soon as the engine temp is haigh and the car is not in motion.
For that reason I was thnking that perhaps the refrigeration system could have a leakage that could exit close to the sensor.

Does anyone know where the temp. sensor is located (close to the fog light??). Anyone knows about easy methods to solve these small leakages (additives for the refrigeration liquid?).

Another thing: I have problems with my CD-read, and I am considering to replace the sound system.
Can the sound system be replace by a standard one?
Anyone know how to remove the sound system?

Thanks a lot to everybody providing inputs,

jslloren
