    My AC discharge line blew up at the end of the summer last year. I want to replace it and charge up my system before it gets too hot. The problem is, where do I get a replacement?

    I searched on ebay and came across some used OEM ones. Not sure I trust these as mine blew up and perhaps these used ones are on their way out. I'd like to buy new if possible.

    I found new ones made by 4 seasons and ordered one part# 55214. It matched up in the compatibility chart and I foolishly assumed it was the correct part. I just tried replacing the old one and learned that it was not the right one. Along with the hassle of returning it, I searched and found several part numbers made by the same company that are supposed to fit and they all look different. I think part number 55217 looks the closest, but I'm not sure if it will fit. My question is, has anyone replaced theirs with an aftermarket part and if so, what part number/manufacturer did you use? Or am I stuck having to find an OEM one used or a new one that is ridiculously priced? Thanks.

    I think you will get more assistance if you have a profile so everyone knows what year of car you are talking about. New items, aftermarket, may look different but still fit okay. Let everyone know what kind of car you have and someone will surely chime in! :thumb:

    I personally have 2 ac systems that I've removed from cars I've owned/currently own. If you need any parts, just let me know!

    Why don't you try a regular auto parts store instead of ebay?

    I don't have an O'reilly by me, but I tried their website anyway for sh**s and giggles. I tried "AC discharge line", "AC line", "AC hose", etc. I get no results. Do you mind posting a link to this part?

    Well, how much do you want for the discharge line or are you not willing to sell just the line?

    PM sent. I will sell individual pieces. I bought the car for the drivetrain to do a AWD swap. Everything I don't need is for sale.

    I have that hose (part#55214) and it's the wrong hose. While the fittings are correct, the overall length of the hose is a few inches too short and the metal tubing is bent much differently and is shorter than the original.

    Glad I work at a shop that makes a/c lines so if this happens on my 1gb I'm covered. Hope you obtain what you need
