2002 Durango air conditioning problem

My Durango's air conditioner crapped out this year. I took it in to two places and both found the leak to be in the pipes that services the rear controls. They both refused to to the job because it was going to be too labor intensive and the quotes were too expensive for the year of this vehicle. I really don't need it in the rear, the front seems to be enough. Question: Is there a way to bypass the rear with a plumbing (manifold) method? I have access to a machine shop.

I'm sure you can probably find one of those fellas that goes from shop to shop and rebuilds/custom builds hoses.........Just eliminate the "T" where it goes to the rear and leave the charge about 1/2 lb shy of what's on the label

it depends on where the leak is if it is a line or the rear evap core lines can be repaired or custom made. if that is more than you want to spend yes you could make a block off plate or cap off the the rear lines since you have the ability to make such parts but the recharge will be very diff. Any place that does a/c work should be able to look up and put the correct charge in it just remember to tell them if you block off the rear a/c because they may over charge system otherwise
