My new sister-in-law has a jeep with no A/C. Before moving here a shop had charged it and added a leak detector because it has been leaking down over the warm seasons. I looked all over for oil/dust/grime accumulation and nothing visible on anything in the engine bay. The only exception is right by the firewall where the lines run into the cabin there's what looks like dried up ORANGE dye on the lines and on top of the dryer. It looks like it *may* have originated at the line unions in that area. I'll have a picture soon.
I'm not familiar with orange dye and I'm not familiar with these connections. After I recovered what may have been half an ounce of refrigerant from the system I tried to open the connections but got no where and I don't want to mess them up. Can anyone offer any insight?

Standard spring lock connections. Most a/c shops have the tools to remove the connections.
Spring lock tool.
I don't see any leaks there. That red/Orange looks like dried mud to me.
My Wrangler likes to leak in the corners of the condensor, Compressor front seal and the evaporator.
