i want to fix my ac, since its summer, its really hot here in so cal. so is there any kits i can buy from pep boys or something to check for leaks, and if i do find a leak what do i do? i already know about the recharge kits, its just if i recharge it, its gonna leak out anyways if i have a leak, so please help.
ohh yea and for some reason my winsheild vents dont work, my ac doesnt go right to left, basically everything that directs the air somewhere isnt working, i checked the linkage and everything it still works, it still makes a clicking noise everytime i do something, the air just doesnt change direction. right now all the air only goes to the i guess "face vents" the ones in front. so please help cus its really hot, and in the winter i cant see when i go to school, kinda dangerous

I'm currently travelling and using a borrowed computer, with limited tools and time. I have encountered a problem with my A/C. At first I thought it was due to the torrential downpour encountered at Montreal Supra meet which made my passenger floor all wet (water leaking thru the vents) when using A/C to keep the windows from fogging (even on recirculated control setting), but today I have a wet floor again after using the A/C on a hot dry day. I'm thinking that possibly my vent is frosting under the dash possibly due to a malfuntioning receiver/drier, I dunno? (currently a R134 retrofit using R12a)
Any thoughts or help with this would be much appreciated...
I also shorted out my fan blower relay coil due to the water accumulating in the casing (from above mentioned problem). I've jimmied the contacts on permanently and just plug it in when needed. If anyone has a spare working fan blower relay, please pm me, thanks.

Okay, so I had a little more time to search CS.com for remedies to the above problemo and found some common threads
re: passenger side water. After reading, I knew a little more about what to look for...
Following closer inspection, it appears the hose from the A/C outlet going thru the firewall was pinched. I pushed it thru the firewall a little further, then pulled it back giving some slack and rigged up a connector to blow some air thru it. There was still some moisture in the line when I first removed the hose. I reconnected it, now seems to be working ok. :thumbsup:
Also, it may have been excess water accumulated in the vents due to the torrential downpour experienced coming into Montreal. In fact, I've never actually driven thru such a deluge in my life!!
