AC unit clear liquid advice


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I've just removed the interior AC assembly from a defender and this clear syrup type substance ran out the main AC refrigerant pipe... which I wasn't exactly anticipating... anyone able to shed any light on it for me? It has a bitter what I think of as a silicone smell...?

It's call PAG oil, there are various viscosities available, spec should be in the manual but any A/C specialist will have the info'.

No need for you to put any in as the oil is replenished when the system is re gassed, there are measured quantities for each component that's been drained/replaced.

If you tell whoever re gasses the system what you've done, they'll be able to ensure the correct oil spec' and quantity are injected with the gas.
