In the haynes it says it needs to be depresurized before I take it out meaning undo the tubes to take it out. Is this true? How can I do this? Do I have to take it to a mechanic? :happyhapp

The car is stuck in the garage, I cant get it to a mech, and Im not even going to try If I could, Im not paying someone to depresurize my a/c . :nono:

one thing its illegal under the clean air act to let refrigerant just go where it wants.... usually youd use a recovery machine and drain it into a safe container... basically if you let the refrigerant out that schrader valve its gonna spray out not drip but spray out and pretty much be everywhere

Ha dude w.e you do dont breath in that freon, its killa!! I mean I understand alot has changed since you were a teen so my advice is wear a gas mask or something. Freon can get you high but it also kills brain cells and toomuch of it will stop your heart. Its not worth the 1min of bein messed up. I thik its just be best if you had it done at a shop.

actually, I just unscrewed the top of the compressor and nothing came out. I guess my a/c was that dead.

Im now trying to figure out how to get the tubing that goes from the condensor to the firewall off . I think I need a special tool, any idea?
