Was just checking things out under the hood and it looks like I have a freon leak from one of the HVAC lines on the driver side. Seems to be leaking from a crimp in the line. Grr. Anyone have an estimate on labor hours to get this line replaced? Just under 39k on the odo.

Really? That’s your contribution? Pic 1 shows plenty of detail if someone needed reference of the location. The front of the balancer is visible along with the alternator. For anyone who has looked at our engine bay, it should be plainly obvious. Man you’re a piece of work.

It appears to be the suction and discharge line, which happens to be an assembly, according to the parts fiche. However, I can't seem to find a part number nor price. The EVAP to condenser line is available though.

Nix that. Found a part number for ye:92288310. They're calling it a discharge hose, though it has both on it

Thanks! Made an appointment to have it looked at by the dealer so we’ll know for sure in a few weeks. Can’t get it in there before then. Found a few instances online of people with this same problem. Some reference engine movement as a source of the issue. We’ll see.

Parts are cheap. Was more wondering about the process involved with replacing it.

In typical CB750 fashion "its not FREON, Freon is a brand name for R12 refrigerant like Kleenex is to tissue paper, get your facts straight" :devil

Typically, you'd want to have the system properly evacuated using a refrigerant machine according to section 609 guidelines. Then you could go about replacing the assembly. Filling up the system would be best handled by a professional with a machine to determine the exact weight of refrigerant to replace - unless you have a vacuum pump, dual gauge setup for the high / low side and a bottle of refrigerant with a scale.

Not everybody here is an expert such as you. That is blatantly obvious.

Take a quaalude and call back tomorrow. :kiss

Interesting, looks like die in it. Could just be the oil I guess but it is very green. It's been a while, does this look like factory oil/134 coming out? Has it been charged before?

Just curious.

If you can do a blower, you can do this. If you don't care about the Ozone Layer of course. Vac pumps and gauges are cheap nowadays.

Helll, just Utube it!

Nope never been changed or serviced before. Tracked the car from Australia to my dealership.

The normal oil Is green and synthetic. No need to add dyagnostic dye.

This hose failure is not uncommon for the SS or Police vehicles. We get 2.5 hrs labor to replace it.

Also, any idea on the cause of the failures?

No, just the separation of the hose at the crimp as described in the thread starter. A couple of the cars that we fixed were in a front end collision.

I have purchased one and keep it at home incase I need one and it becomes hard to get.
