Comments about ToughOne Air Conditioning Hose Assembly:

This was my third AC hose assembly that was defective. Part was for a 94 mustang gt.

On the third line the AC service ports leaked full bore. There was also another leak somewhere else on the line as it wouldn't hold a vacuum.

All the O-rings were replaced twice. When I put the old line back on that had a very small leak, the system held a vacuum no problem, thus isolated to this new defective hose. I didn't want to waste Freon and dye to see exactly where it was leaking. I've wasted over 6 pounds of Freon messing with these 3 defective replacement hoses.

I've done AC work for many years and I've never had so many problems with defective AC hoses. This is also the first time I purchased replacement hoses from Advance auto; the brand of hose was Tough one.

It's creeping into winter and the weather will be too cold to mess with servicing AC. Thank god it's over.

I don't know what happen with these hoses but it's ridiculous. I have nothing else to say, I've already wasted far too much time with this whole situation.

I'm out $300 on materials and labor all because of poor quality and substandard engineering. It would be nice if Advance auto would help reimburse my losses.

I am appalled.

    Comments about ToughOne Air Conditioning Hose Assembly:

    Purchased the first AC Hose and it leaked. (See review)

    Bought this hose to replace the new leaky one and when it arrived I pulled it out of the packaging to inspect it and the line was beat up and full of rust and dirt, (Thankfully I paid attention instead of just installing it on the car) It looked like the hose somehow drawled moisture and began to corrode inside, not sure what happen to it but this is very frustrating. Even though I couldn't verify a leak on this hose I would bet money that it leaked. The very next day I took it to my local advance auto store and received a refund.
    Directly after returning the second hose for a refund I promptly called the 800 # to explain what had been going on. They seemed very helpful and wanted to help. I truly believe the lady understood where I was coming from and understood the story of the events that led up to where I was at the present time.
    Nothing changes the fact that I still haven't resolved this issue. I've wasted a lot of time and money on this and it's getting old. I'll have to think about and decide what I'm going to do. If there ends up being a third hose I will give an update on it.

    It concerns me because I hope the first hose didn't have rust in it that I couldn't see, if so my AC System is probably toast if it has rust in it. I do flush All New AC hoses before they get installed but if rust is present, flushing won't help. Only time will tell I guess. When I do manage to find a non-defective AC Hose and I evacuate the car and run a vacuum on it again I will be able to see if there is any contaminates in the system.

    It may be time for advance auto to reconsider some of the processes.

    Third time's a charm???

    The AC Hose Assembly I bought Leaks

      Comments about ToughOne Air Conditioning Hose Assembly:

      I've Done AC work for Years. This part was for a 1994 Mustang GT 5 Speed. My old Ac Line assembly leaked (dripped) on the low pressure side at the connection closest to the Master Cylinder. It leaked directly on the Exhaust header and sometimes made it on top of the steering Rack where the Steering shaft connected. I wanted to fix this so it wouldn't be leaking and causing a mess.

      This was the only replacement line I could find that was a Lifetime Warranty. Only reason I gave it a chance. The weather is about to turn bad but the other day it warmed up to almost 80F so I decided to replace the line.

      I evacuated the system (the legal way) and removed the old hose assembly and replaced all O-rings pertaining to this job as usual. When installing the new line I noticed that it wasn't an exact fit. It comes very, very close to the Power Steering reservoir, (It's basically touching it) Much closer than the original. I understand I could have bent the steel line to make it fit better but I didn't want to take the chance of breaking it and voiding the warranty...

      I did however get the assembly installed, dyed the system and ran a vacuum on it for over an hour. I let it sit for another hour to make sure it would hold a vacuum. It seemed to do so.
      So I charged the system with 2.13 Pounds (exactly) of 134A Freon. Everything seemed fine; AC was ice cold as it should be. 40F Vent Temps
      The next day after getting home, (I don't drive this car everyday) I went over to the garage and raised the hood on the GT and began to go over the A/C system with a UV Light and noticed it was leaking (seeping) through the welded connection on the metal hose on the High side that plugs into the AC Condenser. Not at the connection point but on the hose. I will include a picture of where it's leaking.

      The only upside to this product is it's supposed to have a lifetime warranty. As long as the leak doesn't get any worse I might have to wait until next spring when the weather warms up to exchange this. (The weather Might be too cool to work on any AC system in the near future)
      The line does appear to have Goodyear Rubber hoses but the metal parts of the lines do seem a bit generic, I really don't care about this as long as it doesn't leak.

      It's too bad that it leaks because time is precious not to mention the Freon isn't exactly cheap either. When I replace it I will probably have to go ahead and re-re replace the 0-rings on the compressor which means I will have to buy another O-ring kit as the one I purchased for this only comes with 2 which I used when I replaced this line. The 0-ring kit is another $10 unless I can find just 2 O-rings that match up. (Doubtful without a certainty that they will work and not leak)

      Because this line is leaking, if my math is correct I figure I'm probably out close to $150 in parts, materials and Labor. (This is not including the cost of the line; it's supposed to have a lifetime warranty)
      If the advance auto website allows me (I doubt it) I would be willing to modify my review after I swap the AC Line Assembly for a new one that hopefully doesn't leak. See enclosed pictures.
      This review is going to make me answer "would I recommend this to a friend", I would if I could get a hose that wouldn't leak, and the fact it has a lifetime warranty.
