PostSubject: Air Con Recharge   Thu Dec 29, 2011 4:21 pm

Hi,

I wnet to Kwiik Fit to take advantage of an offer for a cheap air con recharge. The guys in there couldn't find where to recharge the vehicle and weren't sure what gas to use (my manual is all in Japanese!).

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Lift up engine hatch if you have a a yellow sticket that is what you have.

93 is when Toyota changed from R12.

If yours is still R12 Kwikfit may not touch it but DON'T get the vlaves converted as you can still charge the system with a replacement gas through them. You may have to shop around and pay a bit more to find someone who ,can do this.
