    I was told that I should take my 2007 Toyota Tacoma into the repair shop instead of risking furthermore damage to the truck. This was an a/c problem that I was trying to fix. But instead of taking it in right away I decided to do one last check before taking in. Now I've concluded that the problem for my leak is probably an o ring that gone bad. Its the o ring on the line that connects the the condenser on the top right corner of it. This was done by using uv dye and a uv flashlight to pin point the problem. But when I took off the the leaking line off from the fitting of the condenser I noticed that there was no o ring and i'm not sure if there is supposed to be one or not. It might of just gotten really rotten and fell off but I probably would of seen some trace of it but I can't even tell. Also there are so many different types of o rings I'm not even sure which one to get. Do I get the green o rings or do I get the o rings with the metal ring surrounding it. I watched a video and he was working on a 2008 tacoma and he said that there was an o ring in that location I just mentioned but didn't actually get to see him take it off.

    What he said. Or go to the dealer and pay about 5 - 10 dollars for the pair ( one on each hose fitting ).

    Believe it or not, Autozone has a full A/C O-ring package you can buy that includes everything. I used it in my '07 when I did the condenser and compressor. I can get a pic of the bag if you need it.

    I just want to be certain but what type of o ring did you stick on the condenser lines?

    Do you mean where the hard lines attach? I'm sorry it's been a few years and I just don't remember. What I do remember is that when I removed them, it was obvious which item from the o-ring kit was the proper replacement.

    I did this last year and I used the black one because it was thicker. I was still leaking with the green one. The green one is supposed to be made of better material (HNBR) but it was not working in my case.
