I'll probably just have mine done professionally, but does anyone have a picture of where to put the R134A in? I could never find it..
I can verify this as i have that license myself. For those that are interested, they send you a take home course and test that you go through and then send back (with a small fee), a few weeks later they send you a certificate (if you passed) and a wallet card and you can then buy R12.Originally posted by mufflerman@May 15 2004, 08:31 AM
yes you do need a special licence,and before you work on any a/c you should use a varifier to see what is in the system,if not it is one easy way to kill your self
If you choose to do it yourself i would recommend getting a the Haynes Techbook called "Automotive Heating and Air Conditioning" and the Haynes manual for your specific year and make of your car. The first book will explain how the A/C system works and how to maintain and charge it and the second book will have vehicle specific pictures and information on the A/C system in your car.Originally posted by PointSource@May 29 2004, 04:58 PM
I have a 2000 Mercury Sable; it has the Duratec 3.0 V6 engine. I went to MIDAS to get my brakes worked on, and to also check up on my air conditioning system. It turns out, that it needs to be recharged; I presume it needs freon.
They wanted $89.00 just for the freon recharge.
How difficult is it to do the recharge? We have a lot of tools here and my father will help me.
Can someone walk me through this? Where can I purchase the freon?
As much information as you can give would be extremely helpful.
Thank you very much.
