Re: [DML] AC Rubber tubing

I just helped another DML'er replace his hoses with Hervey's lines.   The 
replacement was pretty straightforward. The only snag is you have to make  sure 
you can actually get the lines apart (can be difficult if the fittings are  
really tight) and it can be tough to run the hoses though the frame by the gas  
tank.  We just used a pry bar to pry the plate down a little as we fed the  
hose through.  
As far as removing the remaining freon, I have heard that R134a poses no  
environmental threat and while it may not be exactly legal or responsible, you  
can press the low pressure side needle in the fitting with a screwdriver to let 
 the rest out.  Might want to wear gloves in case the oil sprays out  too.

Can I  just replace them easily 
myself, or do I need an AC shop to evacuate any  remaining R134A for 
safety/environmental reasons - or is there not enought  to worry about 
if I open and replace the tubing before I bring to an AC  shop to 
recharge?  Any advice on this subject is  appreciated.
