Open the hood and kill the car. Locate the A/C vacuum hose, and remove it, this can be done by hand. Replace with your factory same hose model.

Once you locate it you must first drain the A/C SYSTEM. This is VERY important. You will then need large wrench's to loosen the ends of the hose. Be sure to break each end loose first before removing the hose. Install new hose and refill A/C system.

If you are asking, you probably shouldn't do it because it takes specialty tools to evacuate the system (dumping it is illegal) and also requires a vacuum pump to put the system into a vacuum to put the freon back into the system. Also, there are other things that should be addressed when doing the repair, an pro should help.

It is very simple once you have located the a/c unit under the hood. You will need to unscrew both clamps that attach the hosing to the a/c unit and slide out the old hose. Now just put the new hose in its place and screw the clamps on tightly.
