Hello and welcome to just answer. You have a blocked orifice tube in the ac line running along the right fender area in the engine compartment. You will need to discharge the ac system. Then replace that line and the accumulator / filter assembly. At that time you should inspect the system for any debris that may have clogged the orifice tube. If so, have the system thoroughly flushed and the compressor replaced. If you see no debris, then just replace the line and accumulator. Then evacuate the system and refill it with refrigerant. That should get it blowing cold again.

I hope that this information is helpful and if so would you kindly take a moment and rate my service using the just answer star rating system? I would really appreciate it. I will still be able to help you out even after you rate me.

Thank you!
