    I've got a 98 Tahoe with rear A/C. One of the lines running to the back has a leak, It came out of one of the brackets and rubbed a pinhole in the line. Has anybody ever replaced one of these lines? What about splicing the line? It doesn't look like it will be easy, just wanted see if anyone else has been through it.

    Will a hydraulic shop make/fix aluminum lines? From what I've seen, it looks like all aluminum with rubber sleeves where it is held by the brackets.

    Thanks, I made some calls yesterday, one place said it should be about $150 to remove, repair and reinstall the lines. Sounds good to me since it looks like it will be a bitch to get the lines out of the vehicle.

    i twisted off a coroded connector on my rear A/C. I took a 3/8'' brass connector and put it back together.Did a leak check and it all is great.Cost $1.50. Thats what you get when you buy a line repair kit but you pay more $$$$$$.
