I Own a 2002 mk1 yaris, love the car to bits but ac isnt working. I KNOW there is no refigerant in the system so it needs a regas, im gonna change all the o rings before i get regassed too, i figure stop them causing a problem before they start as i have no idea how old they are... also i assume the clutch on the compressor is internal as i cant see any sign of an external clutch on the one on my car or the new one.
i have purchased a second hand compressor that i am planning to replace mine with, but it was shipped with nothing sealing the pipe holes, so in sure some dirt etc has gotten inside. what would be the best product to flush the pump out with to make sure its clean inside?
the new pump obviously has no oil inside either and im not sure how much may or may not be in the compressor currently on the car, as its has been almost 2 years i have had the car without the ac working or being touched i am assumung that there will have been leakage over time (approx 30000 miles) so i would also like to know if anyone can tell me what oil i need to put in and how much? i know it will be PAG oil but i dont know what grade...
any help greatly appreciated guys 🙂
