Subaru Crosstrek Service Manual: Refrigerant recovery procedure Procedure

HVAC SYSTEM (HEATER, VENTILATOR AND A/C) > Refrigerant Recovery Procedure



During operation, be sure to wear protective goggles and protective gloves.

Connect the refrigerant recovery system with the manifold gauge set to discharge the refrigerant from the A/C system and recycle the gas.

When recycling the discharged refrigerant, keep service cans on hand. Because the recovery rate with the recovery system is approx. 90%, service cans are necessary to charge the refrigerant.

Follow the detailed operation procedure described in the operation manual attached to the refrigerant recovery system.
