Care must be taken to ensure fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance,
testing, adjusting, and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers

Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.
N OT E
Use a container to catch any fluid that may drain from hoses or system. Dispose of fluid IAW local pol-
icy and ordinances. Ensure all spills are cleaned up.
Refrigerant is odorless. As a result, all of it may leak away and not be noticed until system stops cool-
ing. All vehicle refrigerant systems lose some refrigerant depending on the condition of system. Higher
loss rates signal a need to locate and repair leaks.
Leaks are most often found at the compressor hose connections and at various fittings and joints in sys-
tem. If unapproved replacement hoses are installed, refrigerant can be lost through hose permeation.
