01 Suburban A/C Leak

Had the compressor replaced last summer, had the system recharged twice since, Mechanic added dye, now says leak may be in rear a/c. Is this possible? I thought rear a/c was only a blower. Do I need a special light
to see where the dye has leaked?
Thanks

Depends on the dye that was used.

does the refridgerant run to the rear of the truck, or is cool air pushed back by a blower?

On burbs they always ran freon back there for rear A/C and still do as far as know. It is easier to route freon back there is two small lines to a evaporator than try to blow that much air back there in big ducts and have it heated some in the process.

There is a evaporator back there too and usually they use a flouresent dye the is very visable under a black light. Some use sniffers too to check for leaks.
