Fluorescent Dye Leak Detection
- Fluorescent dye will assist in locating any leaks in the A/C system.
- Leaks in the A/C system will be indicated in a light green or yellow color when using the leak detection lamp.
Use the leak detection lamp to check for leaks at seals, fittings and A/C components.
NOTEBefore using the florescent leak detector for the first time, read and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Halogen Leak Detector
Do not operate the detector in a combustible atmosphere since its sensor operates at high temperatures or personal injury and/or damage to the equipment may result.
Ensure that the vehicle has at least 0.41 kg (0.9 lb) of refrigerant in the A/C refrigeration system in order to perform a leak test.
NOTEHalogen leak detectors are sensitive to the, solvents, washer fluid and some adhesives used in the car.
Clean and dry all surfaces in order to prevent a false warning. Liquids will damage the detector.
NOTEFollow a continuous path in order to ensure that you will not miss any possible leaks. Test all areas of the system for leaks.
