Hi Guys, help me please. I bought a really, really nice 1979 280sl euro I guess it is. The PO had a compressor go out of the a/c and removed the compressor and brackets. I did get the old compressor with hole in side! Brackets were reinstalled, bought a new compressor, accumulator/reciever with the sight glass. I have everything ready to go with the exception of I can't for the life of me find the wire for the a/c clutch. If someone could look at there's it would be great. There was a small bare space on the wire going to the elec fan. could it have attached here, or is it just hiding? I'm at a lose and know this is really simple thing that I'm turning into something more than it is. PLEASE HELP!
Thanks

Both my 79 and 84 have been cut and spliced but they both power the A/C clutch off the Aux fan. The 79 has a add on relay next to the radiator (pass side).

Thanks for the info. I was leaning in this direction. Does your ac work ok? How did they put the relay in. I don't see one on mine?
Thanks
