New AC Compressors Leaking
I installed a brand new Delco A-10 style compressor in my Mercedes 380sl last April, and it was leaking from the rear seal immediately. So, I used itís 1 year warranty to return it, and I got another one, which I installed last May.
Even though I hardly used that one, I was shocked to find now that it, too, is leaking from the rear seal, just like the other one was. And as far as I know, I didnít do anything that should have caused both compressors to leak.
Before I replace this one, I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether itís possible that I got 2, brand new, Delco compressors that leaked, or whether I could have done something that caused them to leak.
Thanks very much in advance for any help anyone can give me on this.
