You can get a retro-kit at Wal-Mart or local parts store with complete instructions. You can jusmp out pressure switch at accumulator with paper clip to start compressor during refill procedure

hey if you do not have freon in the system you have to go to an auto repair shop that does a/c work and have the system vacuumed down to 3in hg.then you can add freon this cant be done by you unless you have an a/c vacuum pump and the proper connection hoses and gauges. don`t know if you`ve had the car retrofitted to except r134 instead of the r112 that year came with, because if you hav`nt you ca`t buy r112 without an license. but all you have to do is go to auto zone or pep boys and buy a refit kit for about 40 bucks. change the nozzles yourself add in the oil and then go to your a/c shop and let them pull a vacuum on your system then add the freon from the kit and hope you don`t have a leak somewhere hope this was able to help you out

My 1987 Mercedes Benz 190e doesn't blow cold air how do check if it is the ac compressor or the freon?

If the system is low on freon the a/c compressor will cycle on and off in short intervals. The compressor is located at the lower driver's side section of the engine. The center of the pulley will move and stop as it cycles. You should be able to hear it cycling also. Since it is an older model car you will probably have to use R12 refrigerant which is not available at most autoparts stores. A qualified technician should be able to recharge your a/c but the problem will most likely persist because of a leak somewhere, either in the lines or the condenser/evaporator.
