The Laguna II has only one recharge/discharge port. The refrigerant amount in the air-con system is not measured by pressure but by weight. A special machine is required to remove whatever refrigerant is already in the system and then the correct amount then added along with the correct lubricant an dleak detection dye. Over-filling will cause serious damage

If the incorrect amount of refrigerant is added the compressor clutch will not worlk correctly
