Good day members,
I am looking to install A/C into my W460. It has a replacement E230 W124 replacement engine in it. Does anyone know where the best place to find a good A/C unit, does it have to be specific MB or are the substitutes? Another thought is there someone or somewhere trustworthy and good that could help me with this?
Any advice or direction is appreciated.
TIA

Without making improvisations, the in-cabin stuff is very specifically G wagon exclusive while the engine bay stuff can be generic.

It used to be that if you wanted an air con in a 460 you bought it with one in it, but maybe you could try Trevor Nicholas or one of the overseas vendors for a used cabin unit.

Thanks for your reply. It’s obviously not essential but I would like to explore the option of trying to install. Who is Trevor Nicholas?

Speak to John at Coolco in Cape Town. I can't speak for your model year, but in the later models Mercedes uses a lot of common parts across the various vehicle lines.
For example the aircon evaporator that is used in the modern W463s is the exact same one that is used in C Class W203/4 models.

John is great and knowledgeable in all things aircon. Service is great and reasonably priced.
He might be able to figure out how to source and install one for you.
