I had my aircon go at just over 5k miles, I am trying to find some guidance relating to how the repair is done (two pipes rubbing against each other problem) my local "Dodge Approved" garage said they think they will need to take the engine out LMAO! If anyone has had it done any information would mean a lot to me.

BTW I am in the UK so have no dodge warranty or proper dodge garages to take this to. The importer is great Charles Partos but as of yet not had this problem to deal with so no UK garage currently has any experience of this.

So any info, part numbers, job guide etc is welcome.

Just out of interest to see how widespread this problem is please answer the poll if you dont mind.

Many thanks for any advice/contribution to the thread.

I am assuming you are talking about the air conditioning? If you lost the refrigerant charge due to a hole in a line it should be simple. Replace the lines and recharge the system.
Yes it might be real hard to access some of the fittings. That is why they said they may have to remove the engine. A good mechanic / craftsman could make some tools to reach or perhaps the factory has tools that can be purchased. The factory service manual should have the procedures and any special tools needed.
Worst case they are dropping the engine including the front suspension / cradle to get access. Again the FSM would be invaluable.

Not many miles on my car, but I've not had any issues. Wish it blew cooler tho & the auto fan seems to run too low much of the time. The dealer did do a flash of the software when I was in there (for an unrelated service) a few weeks ago, not sure what it was suppose to correct but I've noticed no difference. Mine is a late June 2016 build.

My aircon had a problem with the liquid line they said it was rubbing against a power steering line or something like that? They didn't have to take the engine out or anything to fix it and I waited for it while they fixed it and it only took maybe an hour or two.

No issues however they flashed a new HVAC update for my 2016 challenger last week, when I brought it in for the oil change. To be honest, I couldn't tell the difference after the update.

Maybe ResumeSpeed, fnkychkn and rayzazoo could shed some more light.

Only problem here is the lovely musty/mold smell, as with all A/C cars, after I turn it off, blowing just the air.
