The air conditioning system consists of several parts to keep it functioning. The compressor, condenser, receiver drier and various hoses just to name a few. Please refer to General Information & Maintenance for information and precautions.
If you don't have access to the necessary equipment, we recommend that you take your vehicle to a reputable service station to have the work done. If you still wish to perform repairs on the vehicle, have them discharge the system, then take your vehicle home and perform the necessary work.
