Removal of rear aircon unit

Hi All, hope all is well.

I am in the process of removing the rear AC unit out of my 2007 Fortuner. I have managed to remove all the housing and plastics and now just left with the Condenser "radiator" looking thing. That needs to go too. even with the rear cool button off
i noticed it still getting cold. I was hoping to remove this without having to discharge the system, would this be possible? I have no experience with Gas and AC systems. I tried loosening the bolts under the fender/bumper side but after 3 turns gas started leaking so quickly put that back.

Looking forward to you assistance.

Regards

I'm new to the D4D Fortuna:
I'm curious why do you want to remove it, I find the system very satisfying and a cinch to use?

I would also love to know why you would want to remove the rear aircon unit.

The short answer would be stupidity :dash: But have slowly adding shelving units at the rear so that vent is almost 100% blocked all the time, there was also a fair amount of damage that had been done to those rear plastics so pulled them out and now planing to form my own inner protection along that discovery, I have a use for that crevice where the blower was.
