AC Line Or Hose Replacement
MOBILE A/C LINE OR HOSE REPLACEMENT AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
The low pressure side of the air conditioning system in most vehicles is attached from the A/C evaporator to the AC compressor. It’s referred to as the low pressure side because during this phase of the cooling process, the refrigerant flowing through the system is a gaseous state. The high pressure side distributes liquid refrigerant through the AC condenser and dryer. While low pressure A/C hoses are made out of metal, with flexible rubber hose material for places where the hose needs to run through tight spots inside the engine compartment. Due to the fact that the engine compartment is extremely hot, the A/C low pressure hose can sometimes develop small holes that causes refrigerant to leak and can render the A/C system useless. If this occurs, our mobile mechanic will test the A/C system for leaks to determine the precise location that is causing the A/C system failure and replace those parts in order for the air conditioning in your vehicle to work smooth and correctly. Rely on Wrench’s mobile mechanics, A/C Line or Hose Replacement experts, who come to you.

WHAT IS A/C LINE OR HOSE REPLACEMENT?
A/C hose device is where the refrigerant passes through to get from one point to another. It’s a specialized hose designed to effectively transfer both liquid and gas, regardless of whether they’re hot or cold. To help the hose do all this, it comes in a flexible design so it can fit easily inside the air conditioning system. It’s also equipped with metal crimping that prevents leaks from happening. A failing hose is one of the most recognizable problems in your A/C because of its obvious symptoms.
HOW IS A/C LINE OR HOSE REPLACEMENT DONE?
- Remove assembly off vehicle
- Deliberately cut the ferrules or crimps, and remove the old ferrule and hose
- Install the replacement ferrule first that will hold the new hose in place
- Slip the new hose into the fitting section
- Slide down the ferrule to secure the hose in place
- Crimp the ferrule. This crimping is what essentially locks the hose in place
Once you’ve replaced the old hose with the new low pressure hose, you’ll want to double check the connections to the compressor and the expansion valve. In many cases, the service manual will explain how to properly tighten the new connections. Our mobile mechanic make sure to double check that each fitting is secured as recommended by your manufacturer.
SYMPTOMS THAT INDICATE YOU NEED A A/C LINE OR HOSE REPLACEMENT
