MB Climate Control Vacuum Actuator Repair

Post by Geoff P2 » Fri 17 Aug, 2018 10:20 pm

Many owners of W126 (and other period models) have variants that are fitted with vacuum operated climate control actuators that are leaking. Replacement actuators are expensive and owing to long storage, may have suspect internals.

Performance Analysis (www.perfanalysis.com) a US based company, market actuator replacement diaphragms for the MB. Fitting is a cost effective DIY operation.

Thanks Geoff - I see they also have other units including cruise control - good there are companies doing this sort of stuff - cars not getting any newer.
