          probably not, its all original. My guess is that it stopped working and that was the end of it for the car as far as functioning A/C goes.

                  Not not BMW related but I swapped the cab on my truck today. It no longer has a salvage title and I've still spent less then $1000 on it. 1996 Chevy 1500 4x4 with a clean title $500, totaled by insurance = check for $3,500, 1996 GMC 1500 4x4 cab with clean title = $350. Total profit? New truck and I spent about $2,000 of free money on the e30. New stereo, tires, oil change, trim pieces, lip, led bulbs, renown steering wheel, shift boot, and quite a few things I can't remeber.

                  Now here's pics of the cab swap. I didn't get a photo of the new cab on as it was dark by the time we finished for the day.







                  What the truck looked like the day I bought it in November before my insurance "totaled" it for some cosmetic damage.

                    If you want to stick with the r12 I have an almost full tank if you have someone to charge it. Nothing in my fleet is r12 anymore so it never gets used so I can spare some.

                        You should vacuum test it first, to diagnose why there isn't any left in there. You may have working A/C in February but not in July



                        Also, this is today. Come party!

                          For 3 years I dealt with the squeak and creak of my rear end assuming it's the poly trailing arm bushings; just replaced my old rear sway links and the noise is gone.
                          It was making the same noise when I was muscling the links off my sway bar.
                          Dammit I wish I replaced them sooner. The noise was so annoying.

                              I just got my A/C fixed on my e30. Apperantly mine had been converted to R134 but these guys that I went to were willing to refill it with R12 when I first called. The name of the place is Lynns Auto Air in Downey. Ask for Ben, he was pretty straight forward in telling me what I needed.

                                That's alot of work. Glad it worked out for you.
