I'm replacing the AC compressor, receiver-drier, and expansion valve on my
190E but will be having a mechanic recharge the freon.
Can I drive the car to the shop before the system is recharged? Also,
should I hook up all the lines or will the mechanic need to blow out the
lines or do something else before that's done?
I have never replaced a compressor before so a heads up on any "gotchas"
would be appreciated.
