Air Conditioning Hoses for European Automobiles

Amazon Hose & Rubber Company has expert technicians that are skilled in the fabrication and repair of Air Conditioning hoses for European automobiles. Our Tampa facility was recently presented with several A/C lines for a BMW 5 Series. The hoses on the BMW had severely deteriorated and were no longer functioning for their intended use. Our client requested that we fabricate new replacement hoses for their customer.

As you can see in the before photo below, the hoses were in bad shape. Our Service Technician was able to fabricate new A/C hoses using the Continental ContiTech Galaxy Series hose. As you can see in the after photo below, we were able to match the sizes, specifications, bend radius and fittings in order for the Air Conditioning system to be operational again. The customer was very pleased with our work and the timeliness that we completed the order.
