    Question about replacing the AC dryer

    Hi!

    Is it possible to replace the AC dryer (using common tools) and without the need to refill the refrigerant?

    As far as I know, the AC dryer is filled with desiccant to absorb moisture.

    Also, it stores the refrigerant in certain parts of the AC operation, so, my guess is that after opening the dryer the refrigerant will escape. Right?

    Thanks

    I don't see how it would be possible without refilling the system.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
