156 2.5 V6

156 Owner - Air-con & radio problems

Had a 156 2.5 V6 on a 99 V plate since 02, serviced at various specialists (not dealers) but it is now starting to have a few niggles.

I have seen a few threads about radio & air-con but can anybody provide the following:

1. The correct weight of gas for the aircon system? I have had a leak that was fixed in a back street garage but I am not convinced that the correct amount of gas has been added. I have seen 1.2 KG quoted on one thread but I am not sure that this is for the same model.

2. Recently had a new battery fitted but when I picked up the car the radio displays "-- -- -- --" how do I reset it to allow me to enter the code. I have tried leaving the radio on for 30mins with the keys in MAR position but this had no effect, does anybody have the full reset process.

3. I have lost the owners manual thanks to a careless garage, any ideas where I might obtain another?

Hi and welcome to AO

You may want to try posting your questions in the technical lounges as they're more likely to be picked up and answered there

Re: 156 Owner - Air-con & radio problems

hello and welcome, i think the aircon takes 630grams of refrigerent, plus oil (not sure of the quantity, it should be in an autodata book at the garage that did the aircon)

cant help with the code i'm afraid but you can order new handbooks from the dealers.
