But .....it should only be done by a tech who has the experience and knowledge of the RTAA compressor . if done incorrectly you will be replacing the compressor .

I appreciate the replies fellas, I'd like for you to expand on those thoughts. I would like to be armed with a little explicit knowledge when I approach my boss and customer to justify the heavy costs associated with removal, factory rebuild and reinstallation. Thanks guys.
I'm not sure this even something to be concerned about. Are you basing your diagnosis of a leak on anything other than the presence of that oil? What do soap bubbles show? I believe Trane addressed oil marks on one type of their screw compressors (don't remember which one) as being a result of the assembly process, and not necessarily a leak.
No because when the circuit trips on 'low evap refrigerant temp' due to low charge, that is a manual reset alarm.
Also, that compressor doesn't need to be removed and rebuilt. That oring can be replaced in the field and the only cost is the oring and a days labor (and misc shop supply's). Check with your local Trane office for a SB.
