a/c line

the a/c line, the one that runs along the upper radiator hose. Is it pretty easy to replace. It looks like it was loose before and rubbed a hole in the line.

a/c line

The line mechanically should be no big deal to change, just be sure to install new O rings when it's changed out. This is not really a job for the average home mechanic. Once the system has been open to the air, a vacuum needs to be pulled on the system before new R-134a is put in. The air in the system holds moisture and can cause bigger problems down the road. A qualified a/c shop is in order here.

I'll add a great big whatever to the shop time suggestion.

Since its no longer charged and you have it apart, the high pressure valve is a screw in for about $2.50. I literally got a pack of 5 for $10 from autozone. The low pressure is a schreader valve core that is also easy to change.
