2004 Armada LE 4x4 - Still runs like new!
I'm so glad I came across this thread! I have the exact same situation: There is a black cable (or perhaps an air line for a rear shock?) that runs right across the top of my 5/16 in. A/C line and has warn a groove in it to the extent that it has started leaking its florescent green fluid. I have 2 of the Dorman 5/16" splice kits to make the repair.Just tried this repair and it came out pretty good. It was pretty easy. Here are a few pictures
I assumed that if there was HVAC Pag oil running out of that little hole in the 5/116" high pressure line that my refrigerant would have also run out and my system would be empty. To my surprise I found that it was still under pressure when I pressed the Schrader valve on the lower pressure line. How could there still be pressurized refrigerant if the oil is leaking out??? Or does the high pressure line (where the leak is) work independently of the low pressure line? In any event I don't think I can just cut into that line to make my repair or it could get very messy. Any thoughts on this?
