Refill / Recharge AC System Guide
Turn Vehicle On
Turn on the vehicle's engine.
Turn AC System To Max Cold
Turn the vehicle's AC system to the Max cold setting:
- Temperature: Max cold
- Fan speed: Max
- Compressor: On
- Air Recycle: Off
Remove Low Pressure Port Cap
Remove the vehicle's low pressure port cap by loosening counter-clockwise.
It is highly recommended to use an approved R-134A refrigerant canister that does not contain any leak-sealing additive. Leak-sealing additives are a short-term fix that causes long-term issues. Use at your own caution.
Attach Freon To Low Pressure Port
Attach the R-134A freon canister hose to the vehicle's low pressure port. Ensure the hose snaps firmly into place.
Charge AC System
Charge the vehicle's AC system by pressing down on the freon trigger
Recharge AC System To 35PSI
Continue to recharge the AC system until the gauge reads roughly 35PSI. Do not fill AC to 40+ PSI.
Verify AC Air Tempreture
Verify the AC system is now blowing cold air.
Re-Install Low Pressure Port Cap
Disconnect the R-134A canister and reinstall the low pressure port cap by twisting it clockwise until tight.
Good job recharging your freon! Enjoy the crisp, cool air and be sure to keep an eye on the AC system for any leaks or issues in the future.
