Print


CAUTION
Refrigerant displaces oxygen, therefore be certain to work in well ventilated areas to prevent suffocation.


CAUTION
Do not handle refrigerant near an open flame.


CAUTION
Always wear eye protection.


CAUTION
Be careful not to get liquid refrigerant in your eyes or on your skin.

  1. If liquid refrigerant gets in your eyes or on your skin:
    1. Wash the area with lots of cool water.
    2.  
    3. Do not rub your eyes or skin.
    4.  
    5. Apply clean petroleum jelly to the skin.
    6.  
    7. Go immediately to a physician or hospital for professional treatment.
      CAUTION
      Never heat container or expose it to naked flame.


      WARNING
      Be careful not to drop or apply physical shocks to container.


      WARNING
      Do not operate compressor without enough refrigerant in refrigerant system. If there is not enough refrigerant in the refrigerant system oil lubrication will be insufficient and compressor burnout may occur, so that take care to avoid this, necessary care should be taken.


      CAUTION
      Do not open high pressure manifold valve while compressor is operating. If the high pressure valve is opened, refrigerant flows in the reverse direction and could cause the charging cylinder to rupture, so open and close the only low pressure valve.


      WARNING
      Be careful not to overcharge system with refrigerant. If refrigerant is overcharged, it causes problems such as insufficient cooling, poor fuel economy, engine overheating etc.


      CAUTION
      Supplemental restraint system (SRS): This vehicle is equipped an SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) such as the driver and passenger air bag. Failure to carry out service operations the correct sequence could cause the SRS to unexpectedly deployed during servicing, possibly leading to a serious accident. Further, if a mistake is made in servicing the SRS, it is possible the SRS may fail to operate when required. Before servicing (including removal or installation of parts, inspection or replacement), be sure to read the following item carefully, then follow the correct procedure described in this section.
