Default 1992 Accord LX A/C?

I gave my son my this car which now has 240k miles on it with no major
repairs needed so far. Now, the A/C leaks "freon" which costs too much to
keep adding when it only lasts a week or so. Does anyone know someone who is
parting out a car with a matching A/C unit?

That's a lot of work. It would be easier to just find the leak and replace
only what is broken. Two common leaks are the pressure switch and the
service valves.

I have done the condenser on my'92. Not so hard. Switched it over to
the new R-135. Was easy too. bob

Yeah, just replacing one or two things like a condenser or a line shouldn't
be too hard. But replacing everything would take all day and is probably
not necessary.

The most common leak for these cars is the condenser. Look for any oily
spots, or spots that look like it's collecting dirt and you found your leak.
