I started watching the first few videos for stripping the donor. Should I have the A/C refrigerant removed prior starting?
Sheesh.... and one more reason people will just crack a line and walk away... This problem goes away of course if your car was hit in the front and suffered the appropriate damage.They charged me $50 to do it, which I thought was ridiculous, but I called other places and they all wanted to charge for a full AC service to do it.
Nice guy. I had a hard time finding someone to pay to remove my refrigerant. They wanted $140 at some shops... but I found one that would do it for $20.Thanks guys. Had a local guy do it for free this morning (of course he got the refrigerant). Not so much a tree hugger, but I try to do my part.
There are. It has been 10+ years since I got my certification. But as I remember and release of refrigerant gasses into the atmosphere is punishable by prison time and a very hefty fine under the Clean Air Act. I want to say it is sections 608 and 609 of the Clean Air Act where everything is defined.I think there were laws that did not allow you to vent R-12 into the atmosphere, I wonder if there are laws against an individual venting R-134 a from a car instead of from canned air?
