2000 Boxster S Hey Guys, Has anyone ever replaced the AC hard line (Larger Diameter Tube), the metal tubing that runs from the engine (compressor) to the front trunk compartment, and the service access points, via the underside of the car on the passenger side? I recently picked up a very unfortunate fatal dent in the larger diameter tube, Porsche Part No. 996 573 091 01 ??? I ordered the new part and had it shipped to me (NOT cheap) and I pulled off the passenger side front wheel well cover and, man oh man, do they have that thing wiggled in among a bunch of crap. Porsche has used every nook and cranny to shove components, and this little cavity is full of stuff, making R&R much more complex than I was hoping. Its definitely not above my skill level, I'm am hoping for some "wiggle" tips, or movements of the piping that .will facilitate easy replacement. The tubing has more bends in it than a kid with scoliosis has in his backbone. Is there any EASY way to get this thing, not only out, but, back in. I could easily cut the old hard line, but, that still leaves installation. I am hoping that removal of the fuel filler components, and the myriad of vacuum lines is not necessary, but, am not holding my breath. Any tips? tricks? secrets? that I am missing? Thanks in advance for any help!
