Unhappy C200 compressor drone

Hi Everyone,

I have just joined this wonderful forum having only just bought a 2002 C200. I hope that I can learn from all of you and that I can be a useful contributor for years to come.

Unfortunately, I am experiencing the most annoying with a droning noise from the compressor area. The compressor itself clicks in perfectly and delivers the power but the droning especially at Idle can be really upsetting for someone who expects near perfection.

I have been told that changing the compressor is a very costly affair and having just forked out a fair amount of hard-earned cash I am somewhat down hearted at the moment.

Could the droning be coming from another component such as the Ideler Pulley as another person has suggested and if so how can I undertake DIY tests before passing on to the "experts?".

Any guidance or help would be highly appreciated.
