1997 Ford Taurus Question: Air Conditioner hose

I was towing my vehicle from the front end and somehow the ac hose got caught and busted and the refridgerent leaked out. Can someone please tell me how to replace this hose and is their certain parts you need to take off in order to change the hose. -
Answer 1
You'll need to have a shop give you an estimate on the hose replacement and recharging the system because it takes special equipment to pull a vacuum on the system to eliminate any oxygen then install freon and you can find a shop here www.repairpal.com/directory -
