    So I noticed the cold air just stopped coming out from the fan. I know it's not missing any cause even if some was missing you can know the air is cool not warm. I looked under the hood and see green liquid behind the driver side headlight. Or at least a round that area. Could that be where the leak is? Any help or tips would be greatly useful.

    The fluid is the PAG oil from the AC system. You are right to think that that area is where you leak is coming from. Whatever part is leaking needs to be fixed.

    Could be a seal at a connection point or the condenser is cracked and leaking. Hard to say without looking at it in person.

    It'll need to get vacuumed down after whatever repair is needed to make sure there are no more leaks, then it can be re-filled.

    Is there a special tool to remove the ac hose that goes directly inside my car??? Or is it just unscrewing the bolts holding it in place...
