View Full Version : 2010 Rear AC - new gasket

10-30-2013, 03:10 AM
My 2010 passenger rear AC had a leak again for 3 years straight so I brought it back to the dealer. The service manager informed me that MB has changed the part. The old foam gasket is out and the new gasket is a tar like material. This change took place late last year and perhaps another member might have reported. However, I thought I might report this in case someone struggles with the same thing.

One other side issue as a result of this is that the screws holding the AC cover are starting to rust (from the bolting and unbolting). The cover has a light discoloration from the rust stain...

I will report back on the status of this new gasket and how it is holding up...
