How Much oil?

Refrigerant Type: 134a

Hey Guys,

I have a quick question concerning oil replacement in an ac system on a lexus car. A friend of mine had his Lexus high pressure hose blow a hole in it from a bracket rubbing against it. All the freon of course came out and left an oily mess inside the engine bay. The question is how much oil should we put back into the system because of the hose blowing freon all over? My friend put back in about 4 ounces,,sounds like too much to me, so how would we get out the extra oil?

It's always a guess usually determined by how much of a mess it present. My guess since it was the HP line, 1.5 ounces.
