A/C not cooling - oily yellow drip from condensate drain tube - Updated!
Hello everyone. First posting here, hope someone has some info.Working on my wife's '16 forester's a/c. Getting an oily yellow drip from the condensate drain tube.Thinking it's compressor oil. A/C has stopped cooling. Pretty sure it's a leaking evaporator. Checking to find in service date to see if still under warranty (under 36k). Anyway, if not I'll be fixing. Looks like evaporator can be accessed from under passenger side dash I'm hoping. Any tips would be appreciated.
This is our first Subaru so not fully familiar with everything. One question I have is that I don't see a receiver/dryer or accumulator anywhere in the a/c system. Never seen one without but this is my first Japanese car. Does it not have one?
Looking forward to being a member here and always willing to help where can.
Thanks in advance. Ernie
