    Note

    After turning the ignition switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal notices before proceeding with work Click here.

    3. Turn the ignition switch off.

    4. Recover the refrigerant from the air conditioning system using a refrigerant recovery unit.

  3. DISCONNECT CABLE FROM NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL
