Default AC Recharged

2001 Cruiser:

Just had AC serviced with new refrigerant. Is it normal to hear a hissing sound from the AC area, I can't pinpoint the exact location, when ignition is turned off? The sound lasts approximately 10 seconds before stopping.

after you shut the car off, the refrigerant on the high side (compressed) bleeds down to the low side until both sides are equal pressure.

ie: it's normal and should be coming from the lower passenger side

Thanks Rob:

The lower passenger side is exactly where the sound is coming from -
