DIY re-gas air-con?


is it possible to re-gas the air con on a 156 yourself? I understand you can get cans of refridgerant and sealer from Halfords or on-line but wouldn't know where to put the gas!

The connectors are on the two pipes in front of the a/c compressor. They are (or should be) covered with two black plastic caps, one slightly larger than the other.

However, run some searches here as people have had mixed success with DIY top-ups!

The DIY kits i've seen cost around £25 - £30 and if you shop around you can get a proper regas where they drain and refill system for around £50, got mine done at £45 and its been great since.
