Discontinued Refrigerant Hose?
 
Hi,

I'm posting for a friend here whose AC isn't working on his 2008 Vue Hybrid. His mechanic told him that the source of the problem was the "AC Manifold Hose," which is also known as the refrigerant hose or compressor and condenser hose.

He called the local Chevy dealership, which said the AC Delco part (19130479) was discontinued. The part is Vue Hybrid-specific and does not seem to be made by anyone else (unsurprising given that Vue Hybrids are not very numerous); it appears to be out of stock everywhere. I checked all auto part and junk yard websites and could not find any Vue Hybrids.

Can anyone give me any insight into if/how this component can be obtained or how you solved any issues with the hose? Does anyone have an extra they'd be willing to sell? Anyone know of any availability of the part? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!

Based on the information provided, [B][I]fdryer[/I][/B] appears to have found a picture of the hose in question. Aftermarket air conditioning parts suppliers also provide bulk hoses and fittings to make up replacement hoses when direct replacements no longer exist. Contacting a high quality air conditioning repair shop might reveal whether or not it would be possible to make up a replacement hose should that be necessary. I worked at a shop where this was done and have had hoses made up for a vehicle I used to drive. They were installed four years ago and are still in service with no leaks to date.
