Ford Freestyle 2006-2007
Repair or service of air conditioning components is not covered, because of the risk of personal injury or death, and because of the legal ramifications of servicing these components without the proper EPA certification and experience. Cost, personal injury or death, environmental damage, and legal considerations (such as the fact that it is a federal crime to vent refrigerant into the atmosphere), dictate that the A/C components on your vehicle should be serviced only by a Motor Vehicle Air Conditioning (MVAC) trained, and EPA certified automotive technician.
- Connect an R-134a refrigerant service center to the low and high-pressure service gauge port valves following the instructions provided by the equipment manufacturer.
- Recover the refrigerant from the system following the instructions provided by the equipment manufacturer. Note the amount of oil removed, (if any) during the refrigerant recovery. Add that same amount back into the system once repairs are complete.
- Once the refrigerant service center has recovered the refrigerant, switch OFF the power supply.
- Allow the system to set for about 2 minutes, and observe the system vacuum reading. If the vacuum is not lost, disconnect the recovery equipment.
- If the system does lose vacuum, repeat the steps until the vacuum level remains stable for 2 minutes.
- Carry out the required repairs.
