Question on disconnecting rear air AC on 98 tahoe

hello! just got an estimate on repairing/replacing freon lines that are leaking. EXPENSIVE!! 1200 bucks!

anyway the rig has rear air and I asked if there would be any problem with disconnecting the rear air to save money, and I never use it. they said it could be done for half the cost of the original repair. anyone familiar with this repair and is it involved or a straight forward fix? thanks a lot.

bumpin’ this for the Tuesday crowd…

What they’ll do is remove the lines for the rear AC and in their place install refrigerant line termination caps. They’ve just come out with these AC line termination caps for those who have leaking rear AC lines but don’t need/require the rear AC.


good to hear! thanks!
