My A/C recently stopped working so I got it checked out and the shop wants $1200 to repair it. They said that all the hoses are leaking and the compressor is bad. Is this reasonable?

Just take it out and save the wieght... :D But if you must have it, id look around for a used compressor, that should save some $$

haha yeah I'm going to take it somewhere else in the morning to see what they think. How hard are the a/c lines to change out myself?

I personally like to roll with the windows down so I can hear that sweet, sweet American Muscle! No matter how hot it is.:D

i wouldnt recommend doing that unless you had the right equipment to make sure that your a/c system is completely evacuated. If you have a leak, it is possible that some moisture has entered into the system. R134a, the refrigerent used in the a/c system, will create hydrofluoric acid in the presence of moisture. if that has happened, the acid will attack and destroy metals and lubricants. NOTE: Hydrofluoric acid is much stronger than hydrochloric acid

if you have to have it, another option could be a junk yard trip? Maybe you'll get lucky and find a unit similar enough to pop in there that's still good.
