Looking at this 300sd and the guy's mechanic said that the evap core must be replaced. The refrigerant stays for a week at most. Has anybody done this and how big of a pain was it? Does this part generally go bad and need replacing? Anyone have any links to a diy on this? Does the whole interior needs to come out including the dash and steering wheel or can it be done by removing the center console? Not new to Mercedes but this will be my first W116.

And for guys who have had both W123 and W116, could you please tell me your experiences of w116 as compared to w123? I would like a comparison please Which one you prefer? Am I wrong into thinking that for some reason the 300SDs are not getting the same love as the 300Ds as far as looking at prices they are selling for, the nice low mileage vehicles?

Kind regards
