ac repair

Step 32:  Repair air conditioning.  A high side hose crimp blew while picking the kids up from school making a violent sound.  I had the hose repaired $20 and was pleased to see that the system was serviceable from underneath. Haste during the repair broke the condenser that came with the car.  So it was replaced with an aftermarket unit $84.  The system was open during some rain so the dryer $15 was also replaced before charging $32 back up.



What you want is ~24psi on the
low side and 160psi on the high
side.  I left the high side
slightly lower, at 150psi.
