Re: where to attach air con hose to recharge

The Scenic II doesn't have a low pressure air-con port - only one.

Recharging air-con systems using DIY kits is not recommended as it relies on judging pressure whereas air-con systems should be filled by weight and only after the system has been emptied under vacuuum.

Renault do have a low pressure port but in there wisdom they put a high pressure fitting on it so be very carfull if charging 1 as I have had to replace to many compressors due to ppl not knowing what they are doing and putting a
liquid charge into the wrong port and hydrolicen (wish I could spell) the compressor
