Rear AC Block Off Kit Autozone | Does ACS Offer A Better AC Block Off

So you're looking for a rear ac block off kit at Autozone.

We've got good news for you. Autozone does carry some solutions for blocking off your rear ac. However, you'll quickly find that you are limited in your choice of how you block off your rear ac when you default to Autozone. Don't get us wrong, Autozone comes in handy quite a bit when you're seeking some parts that you need today! They carry a good number of parts and there are so many Autozone's around that they're an easy go to for auto parts you may need right away. We're going to show you why Autozone may not be the best option when it comes to rear ac block off kits.

Lets start with what you can find at Autozone when you need a rear ac block kit.

That is a little difficult! I just ran a search on Autozone for "rear ac block off" and choose a year make and model of a vehicle that has rear a ac system. Nothing came up in the results for my search except a Valve Block Off Plate. That's not quite what we were looking for! I specifically searched the term "rear ac block off" it gave me something I didn't need. So, I tried some other terms, more generic such as ac block plug, ac line cut off, things like that. It appears it's pretty hard to find an actual rear ac block off kit at Autozone. What we do know for sure is that Autozone does carry some Compression style line block off or cap off compression fitting kits. This style of ac line block can work for cutting off a line be it ac, fuel, vacuum, etc. This type of compression cap off has been around for a while and can be an easy fix for blocking off an ac line. You MUST KNOW, if you are deciding to block off your rear ac lines with this kind of compression fitting you're taking the more difficult route. Not only is it a little more difficult, it also calls for the destruction of your ac line that feeds the rear ac system. You have to cut the fitting off the line with a line cutter tool. This isn't all that hard to do it's just a very unnecessary step. What you're left with is the ac line with no fitting to match up to the rear ac lines. So now that you've destroyed the front ac line if you ever want to replace your rear lines or accumulator or whatever it is in the rear system that is leaking, you now have to replace your front ac lines as well! So sure you can go for the cheaper option of a compression cap off but if you want your rear ac system working again in the future it will cost even more because of the destroyed front lines.

So what's the best solution to block off your rear ac?

When it comes to Autozone, you've got the compression style. If you want the best solution with the option of a future rear ac system fully functional without costing a ton of money, Auto Cooling Solutions specifically designed rear ac block kits to work in conjunction with your existing ac system and the ac fittings that your vehicle has. No cutting and capping of lines is called for. Our ac block kits are made to match up to the fittings on the front lines that feed the rear system. They match exactly and you only have to unbolt the line from the connection and bolt on our rear ac block off! They are very easy to install and you won't destroy your front lines. So later down the road you can either replace the rear leaking lines or the entire rear system and not have to replace the front lines as well. To top all that off while you're thinking about it, Auto Cooling Solutions also has replacement rear ac lines and complete rear ac systems for most vehicles with rear ac systems.
