A/C Liquid Line Question
Alright so I wanted to ask a quick question about the liquid line running under the passenger battery tray.
Preface to why I'm doing this, my condenser had a pinhole leak from a puncture and I lost pressure obviously from that.
Prior to this, the A/C blew cold, everything worked as it should.
I ordered a new condenser as well as a new accumulator/drier as when/if the system is exposed to atmosphere, it's good practice.
I've also read about the liquid line replacement in this scenario as well, but it mainly seems that this is replaced if a compressor grenades or there is a blockage to the system. I have no such issues and it was working fine before all this.
Am I ok to stay with the current line that's in there or do I need to replace? Can you remove it without taking the battery and tray out or is this a necessary thing to do to get er out?
I've done A/C work on the TDI and other trucks, so I'll be fine drawing a vac, adding the oil, as well as refrigerant spec by weight.
Thanks in advance!
