Probably around $30-50 to get made up. Easy to install, but as you need to vent the A/C gas, it is illegal for you to do it (unless your A/C system has already leaked away). Once fixed you will need the A/C regassed.

I would suggest you take it to a A/C place and they can do it all for you. Expect to pay anywhere from $130-200 to get it all sorted (including the regas).

cheers
Scott

Hmmm, well thanks lads. It can't damage the system to just let it be like that for a few weeks, right?

Wrong, oil is leaking out, when it is gone then the compressor can literally explode. Best leave the AC off, better still remove the clutch wire so it can't run.
