A/C stopped blowing cold air. My wife took van in to get checked out. Shop id'd a leak in high side hose and recommended replacement eventually, but could recharge system and possibly get by for a 6 months. Two weeks after this analysis, the air stops being cold again and they estimate cost to replace upwards of $500+. We were told high side hose is only sold by dealership and will cost about $250.

I checked on internet and it looks like high side hose is about $80.

Are we getting hosed (no pun intended).

Order the hose on line and then have them install it and recharge. Did he look the part up? You can expect it to be expensive if he gets it from the dealership as the Dealer will put his markup on it and the service tech will put his markup on it along with discharge/recharge time. Considering all that the $500 isn't out of line.
