1997 SL
Default A/C prob

1997 SL
197,000 miles

A/C won't kick on (again).

Charged it in May this year. Worked for a while. Then I did the 2nd head gasket fix this year. I might have bumped the pipe- I checked all connections, then noticed that the pipe coming out the back of the compressor is a little loose at its "block". Hmmm. Uh-oh.

Which line is that? It goes from compressor to firewall connection. Suction or discharge? Can buy from RockAuto for reasonable $$$$.

Should I unbolt it, install new one, and get it charged? Would a shop have to pull a vacuum on the system, before charging, if I had unbolted parts of it?

97 SL. Born 6/5/97, bought 7/7/97
08 Burgman 400
02 Haro MTB- can't kill it, still trying though

The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
Will Munny: We all got it coming, kid.
