    My 2008 Expedition had a hole rubbed in the A/C line to the rear. I'm not sure exactly where. Ford was going to charge almost $500. I went to local mechanic and for just under $175 (I think that is what is was) the line was repaired. How he did it I was told was to splice the line where all Ford would do was install a complete factory line. Easy Peasey repair the mechanic said.

    Jimz thank you for that. I think I'll try that first. I don't see how that wouldn't work!

    Was it the high pressure or low pressure side? I think splicing the high side may be an issue, but certainly worth a shot if it works.

    Not sure where the leak was, high or low. All I know is he found the hole, maybe with leak detector?, then cut damage out, added flare nuts and reflared tubes. Then a male x male fitting to rejoin his damage. That has been a couple years ago and no leaks or need to recharge.

    Sorry for long time before post.
