When it comes to replacing the refrigerant in the airconditioning system, some garages struggle to locate the filling points. This guide shows where they are located. It may be useful to print this off and take it with you when you go for a refill.

Both filing points are located under the front panel and behind the headlight as indicated below.

Both fill points are accessible from this position. You can just about make out the second one under the first.

The top fill point is the slightly larger connection and contains high pressure refrigerant vapour when the system is running. The bottom connection is to the high pressure liquid line from the condensor.

Here is another picture taken with the front panels removed, which helps to provide a bit more clarity:

We would recommened getting your airconditioning refilled properly and avoid using DIY kits as you will never get the pressures that are required to properly evacuate and fill the system. Also, it is important that the refrigerant contains an oil which will keep the compressor and dryer well lubricated.
