Installing new speakers in the rear - noticed this wire broke(?) free from the AC spade connector. (right side as you face the unit) As far as I knew, the AC was working OK- any thoughts? Thanks!

if I recall, that is the temp sensor so if the evap starts to freeze it cuts out the compressor. easy fix - replace that one spade (or take it out and recrimp this wire to the single spade) - cheaper than a new compressor or hose which could burst if unit frozen.

Bursting is not an issue. The high pressure AC switch would cut the compressor (by design) well before burst pressure.
