I replaced the clutch which includes the pulley from autozone for about $70, but I think I needed a special puller tool that I rented plus another small one I bought.
I think it's the clutch on the front. I think it's easier to replace than the entire compressor. I've heard stories of people wresting them off early 107's and never reinstalling because it was so hard. Hopefully it's easier on a w108.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
