Yup I see that. But I can’t get the hose to pull out. I’ve watched videos of people just twisting and pulling and they pop right off. These are not...my guess is they are so rusted in there. I’ll let the PB Blaster do its work over night and see what happens in the am I guess.
Good job. The drivers side always seems to be the hard side to get out but oh well, that's older cars for ya! LolSo thought I'd update and show a picture of what the connection actually looks like under the plastic clip. I decided to just pull as hard as I could and it finally came out. Figuring if I broke it, my local store did have the lines in stock so I could just replace it all for $20.
The drivers side is what gave me the fight. Passenger popped right off without an issue.
With the drivers side the o-rings actually stayed in the valve and I had to use a pick to get them out. Put it back together and this is what you end up with in the valve.
All connections back up and running and compressor is happy...nice smooth ride.
Hope this helps someone else if theirs is as stuck as mine was. Just pull straight out.
