Attempted to get the AC repaired. Shop blew up the AC itself by pumping air instead of Freon through it. They kept spraying the engine compartment w/brake cleaner which I believe softened the transmission lines & caused a leak in those lines

AC compressor went out, replaced compressor and major connections to AC unit, gave a full cleaning. The hoses to the new compressor that were not replaced sprung a leak within 2 weeks; repair shop did not claim fault; owner paid in full.
