has anyone had to change out an a/c compressor on a 95 sls mine went the other day so i went and bought the repair manual and all the evac. tool for the refrigerant but i was wondering if anyone could tell me how complicated the job is and if there's anything to keep in mind or pay attention to while doing it?

It's not that bad. First remove the engine belt, then you need to remove the r/f wheel, then the plastic panels to access the front of the compressor. There's 3 15mm bolts. Then you remove the plastic panel under the radiator and remove the oil filter housing/adapter to acccess the rear of the compressor where you'll find 2 10mm bolts and a 15mm bolt which mounts the manifold hose. The compressor comes out through the r/f wheelwell. You'll need the 2 o-rings for the oil filter adapter part # 3543719
