Honda Fit: A/C System Charging (With A/C)

caution
  • Air conditioning refrigerant or lubricant vapor can irritate your eyes, nose, or throat.

  • Be careful when connecting service equipment.

  • Do not breathe refrigerant or vapor.

NOTE:

  1. Connect an R-134a refrigerant recovery/recycling/charging station (A) to the high-pressure service port (B) and the low-pressure service port (C), as shown, following the equipment manufacturer's instructions.

  2. ABC

  3. Recover the refrigerant in the A/C system.

  4. Evacuate the system. If the system cannot reach a vacuum of -93.3 kPa (700 mmHg,27.55 inHg) in 15 minutes, or cannot hold a vacuum for at least 15 minutes, there is probably a large leak. Do the refrigerant leak check, and repair any leaks before charging the system.

  5. Add the same amount of new refrigerant oil to the system that was removed during recovery. Use only SP-10 refrigerant oil.

  6. Charge the system with the specified amount of R-134a   refrigerant. Do not overcharge the system; the A/C compressor will be damaged.

    Select the appropriate units of measure for your refrigerant charging station.

    Refrigerant Capacity:

    370 to 420g

    13.1 to 14.8 oz
