2006 Nissan Xterra Q&A

2006 Nissan Xterra Question: Where and how do I put on a High Pressure discharge hose regarding to my A/C.

I was told I needed to replace my high pressure discharge hose on my 06 Xterra, after getting the hose it seem very simple to put it on myself. I was wondering is it or will some extra thing needed to be done. I dont think it $250 worth to put on and it seems so simple. -

Your better off having a shop replace this because once its reinstalled you will need to pull a vacuum on the AC System to eliminate any oxygen and refill with the proper amount of freon or the system will not cool. and you can check prices here http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=4846 and locate a shop near you here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=77053&car_brand_names=Nissan -

Thank you for your response, If you could answer this for me. If i decide to change it myself can i change it then take it to get feron put in it. Whats this vacuum thing and will i mess up the ac if i put the part on myself cause it looks so simple to put on. -

The only problem with that is it won't be under warranty, Shops don't like to give a warranty if they don't do the complete job. The vacuum pump is hooked up to your system with a series of hoses and gauges that are connect to a freon tank so they can simultaneously pull a vacuum and then refill with freon to the proper level. But give a shop a call and ask for a AC Recharge estimate. -
