Default AC Leak

Hey so I noticed that my AC is not blowing cold air on my 02 wrx

All off the strengths work and the car does blow out air, its just not cold.

I took her to a shop to get an AC recharge. He recharged it, and then showed me where it was leaking.

Anyone know how to fix this?



thanks for any help

There is an O-ring in there that needs to be replaced. They will have to evacuate the whole A/C system, replace the O-ring and then recharge your AC.

You can buy the O-Rings and Advanced auto parts for about $6 (get the green assorted pack)

I have to replace mine this weekend as well. Mine is leaking in the exact same place. He's a video that should help.

Not being a jerk, but it might be better to let a shop handle it. You'll be out of $100-150 minimum, worst case a couple hundred bucks. Better than screwing it up
