I have a 1993 Dodge D-250 Diesel Truck and I am need to replace a hose between the accumulator and the condenser. The fitting at the condenser is round and has a spring inside of it. How do I remove it?
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Go to your favorite parts house- or order on-line here- and get the spring-lock connector - disconnect tool- basically and expander for the garter spring- - they may them in plastic and good ones are metal...
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
Spring Lock Release Tool
I will order part from here because I am going to order some other stuff, the only tool that I could find was here; https://www.ackits.com/pc/41-02182/Miscellaneous/41-02182+-+Toyota+Spring+Lock+Release+Tool,
This is for toyota and I don't think this is the right tool.
Would you please send me the link for the correct tool to order.
Thanks and have a wonderful day
Dang your fast, as I was inputting my reply you posted exactly what I needed.
Here is a Toyota Spring Lock tool.
PS: Thanks for the support.
On the old Dodge you should need the American standard type, usually called a Ford springlock tool because Ford originated these lousy connectors. AMA and most places that sell car tools will have them, much more common than the Toyota.
