Wow, I feel stupid.
I was driving home today, and tried to turn on my A/C. The little light went on, but the air stayed warm. After fiddling with a few things, I concluded that the system must be empty (not likely since it worked correctly a month or so ago) or there was a fuse or something wrong.
So I park in my garage, pop the hood, and notice.....the STi intercooler that I installed a few months ago has butted up against the A/C line, and worn a hole clear through the aluminum line from rubbing up against it. (Please, spare the laughter and/or flaming) The system is completely dry.
So, my question is, can I patch the line with some sort of JB Weld-type material (or some other metal-emulating liquid), or do I have to replace the whole line?
I realize that later, I'm going to have to put some sort of buffer (rubber or something) between the IC and the A/C line. That's no problem, and I can take care of that. Can anyone help me with the problem more at hand?
