  • A/C removal.

    OK I am planning on removing my AC some time here in the near future, as soon as I get my garrage cleared.

    My main question is concerning the freon that is in the system. Do I need to have a shop purge the system or can I just cut the lines and let it drain into an oil bucket?

    My AC clutch has been making a grinding noise for about 3 months and I am jsut tire of hearing it when my car is running and I am not going to replace it so out it goes. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]

            The environmentally friendly thing to do is to have a shop suck it out. Don't cut the lines, you'll be sorry. Take out those bolts very slowly or you'll be sorry. I was undoing mine in the garage and the bolt shot out and I got 50psi of R134 and ester in my face.
