removing air conditionar (everything)

i need to remove my air cond and replace, i heard it is not a good idea to remove the air cond by yourself and pay an air cond place to take it out because of the refridgent.. ??? is this true or can i take it out myself ??

If you get caught releasing the refrigerant, it's a very large fine. Just get a air con mechanic to take out the gas and do the rest yourself.

Re: removing air conditionar (everything)

as said above, the gas will give you cold burns for one if you are not careful, and for 2 needs to be done in a big open space, it smells and can make you sick and light headed.

After its all out, the rest is very simple stuff, pending how well it goes.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

yes... best to get an A/C mechanic to evacuate the system for you.. Then as Dellboy and shano6 said the rest is easy although i am a little curious as to what you think is wrong with it requiring the whole shooting match to come out

The compressor has minimal effect with the gas, i've never seen it leak from the compressor.. But bar a leaking evaporator needing the dash out, i cant see why you would need to evacuate the system and pull it all out
