    If the unit with the ammonia system still has a charge in it, I would proceed with caution. Ammonia can can cause severe chemical burns to skin, mucas membranes, and any moist tissue, like eyes.

    If you still decide to open up the system, do some research or get some qualified help. It can be done, but you don't want to just cut the lines.
