Liquid line won't disconnect?

Refrigerant Type: 134

I am trying to disconnect the liquid line from the condensor with a spring loaded tool. It will not release the spring. The other side was no problem. I will try PB blaster next. Is there a special trick to pop this off without killing my self

I usually give them 20 minutes-- if not loose by then, ,I cut them off--- corrosion is not your friend-- it has crawled in under the garter spring, and will not allow it to expand far enough to release---you may be there a couple of days trying to release it-- my time is worth the price of a new line-- so I cut them after giving it a good try....

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......
