Default A.C. line is leaking

Recently bought and the a.c. line is leaking. Needing to know replacements and part numbers. First time owning a 350z. Anything will be helpful. Thanks.

Yeah there is definitely more than one AC line man. Sounds like you need to take it to mechanic.

It's leaking right under the guard for the cold air intake. My brother said it looks like it is coming from that particular part of the line. I'm not sure what I would need to get to replace it.

Is the leak at a coupling connection, a seam weld, or in the middle of the line itself?.. Can you take a pic?

It's difficult to take a picture of as the leak is underneath the filter. But it does appear the leak is in the middle of the line.

It would help to see the leak because depending on it's size and location will determine how it's fixed. There's flare couplings, epoxy, and then there's just replacing that section; all of which require the system to be evacuated of freon..

The rubber line part? Your info is bad and we are unable to help without an actual picture.

When you recharge it might want to add dye. There are kinds visible in natural light and others visible under black light. gl.
