GL550 Repair Advice
Started noticing a chemical smell several months ago from my 2010 MB GL550 (77K Miles). Car as been well maintained, single owner.
A service place has suggested that the AC system is leaking both the gas refrigerant and oil… and we are likely smelling the oil.
He shares that MB builds the car around the system, and as a result access for repair and replacement is extremely difficult. Noting the entire dashboard must be taken out, etc… with cost estimates of 5K
Can this be so??? Is it possible the compressor is the core issue, and that it simply needs to be replaced? Is there a means of repairing rather than replacing the entire system?
