REPLACING HIGH SIDE HOSE

Air Conditioning problem

I've been trying to recharge the ac system. Whats happened is I went to charge it up and the low side hose started to leak? So I replaced the low side hose then went to recharge again and the High side hose started to leak? Now I am getting ready to replace the high side hose and starting to wondering if there is to much pressure in the ac system and causing the hoses to puncture. So should I let the pressure out and how would I do that before recharging with the kit they gave me.

Thanks, Johnny

Best bet is if you are having this much trouble, take it to a qualified A/C shop, by Federal law, the system needs to be vacuumed out and freon captured to a tank. This will also tell you if there are any leaks. Recharging with the charging station is the BEST way to fill the system. You cant get a proper charge into the system with the hand held gauges.
