You would also have to extend the lines. They are not that long or flexible

Yea, make it clean and DO NOT try to remove the hoses until you have it discharged. It's very dangerous if you dont.

It has to be vacummed down by an AC tech or trained individual. It is not cheap to get the tools to do so. the gas MUST be captured in a receptacle according to EPA. It is a dangerous gas.

this seems like way to much work and money, what happened to the good days where you just ripped something off your truck and thats the end of it

Probable be cheaper if you purchase THINNER Fog Lights!

yea the good ole days...
when we threw litter out our windows while driving...
when we poured oil and radiator fluids down the sewer drains...
when we release dangerous freon into the atmosphere...

If we want our children to have a future,we have to all do our part to protect their future

I hate to say it, but a lot of county and municipalities still allow you to pour out coolant as long as you are x amount of feet away from such and such waterway, drains, etc.
