Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Thanks, Bo, especially on a Sunday! So, at about 1:15 minutes into the video it goes from showing the plate to the hex (female?) adapter shown on the plate, but did not show it screwing on. My plate has no such stud thread onto which a hex female can attach. But WOW! I went back to the car to stare...

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

As I mentioned you may need the puller to get it off. It looks like the tool on the left: http://s7d9.scene7.com/is/image/GenuinePartsCompany/NWMDC?$Product=GenuinePartsCompany/615551 The bore for the socket in the plate has internal threads. The puller threads in, and the bolt presses it off of th...

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

OK, heat from a propane torch did not help- plate is glued on there tight. Sheesh. Hate to force it off. What now, people?

Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Ok, last one. Not the best option - but on the side of the road in Mexico in the dark... One bolt in the plate, large screwdriver between the bolt & the socket on the nut. I was really tired of dripping sweat. How did you know this would work for me? Thats what I did! But now the plate wont com...
