I have 03 trailblazer that is leaking freon. Seems to be leaking from nut on front metal tube close to radiator. What is that part called?

    The front unit is the condenser. The nut has an o-ring inside. Has the car ever been repaired there with a replacement condenser? Those usually don't leak after the factory puts them together. You have to use a wrench on both sides of the connection to try to tighten if it may have been repair. Most likely needs to be removed and o-ring replaced, lubed, and reconnected to torque. But that needs to be done by someone who can remove the freon catching it, vacuum, and refill.
