Refrigerant Type: R12
I have a 1986 Toyota Celica and was replacing the condenser when I found that both aluminum tube/fitting assemblies on the discharge hose (condenser to compressor line) can rotate about 20 degrees or so. Is this a sign of a hose that needs replacing? It is likely the original hose but otherwise looks good. The hose is stiff as hell. Toyota, if they have any NOS, wants about $80 for a new one. It is still running R12.
You can have a little rotation at the connections. But if they move I always check them with a electronic leak detector and make a decision after that.
Who could I contact at your shop to send it in to have it remade? Any cost estimate (about 18" discharge line from the compressor to the condenser). Problem is it has a U-shaped bend in it - don't know if a replacement could bend easily.
