#1 = yes

#2 = no

#3 = just buy the cheap set of four disconnect tools. I forget what size for the AC, but the other's will come in handy when doing tranny or fuel related work.

Many thanks zman17!

I take it this is the kit you are referring to?

Default Discharging refrigerent

davmelrach,

I have read many postings on various sites about replacing the evap coils but never any mention of discharging the refrigerant (R134? Freon?) first. Did you do this yourself? If so, what equipment did you use to do it "right"? How did you recharge it correctly without over filling?

If anyone has suggestions to these questions please chime in!

3 year old thread....

Most any shop that does A/C can recover your refrigerant for you. It is indeed R134. Just need a gauge on the low side so you can monitor pressure when refilling. instructions are generally on the side of the can.
