I changed my TCA on Saturday, June 18th. It has worked great ever since. I had to turn my AC down today, June 21st, because it got too cool. What a nice problem!!
I followed the instructions above and the suggestion of using the chopsticks to get it installed. You might try using forcepts (I use these to remove the hooks from fish when I go fishing) to help install it. They will allow you to hold it easier while installing it. Take your time and Be patient and you can get it installed.
I did not have to "recharge" the system or even touch any other part of the AC. The pictures on Page 2 of this forum give you an idea of what it will look like. I am handy, but I am NOT a mechanic. If you know how to use a screw driver and can follow directions you can install it.
The TCA plug was attached to the housing. Unless the freon runs through the wiring it will not cause it to leak. As I said, I am not a mechanic but I do know that the freon does not run through the wires!! It has been 4 days since I installed mine and it continues to work extremely well.
