Honda Accord: A/C Refrigerant Oil Replacement - Heating/Air Conditioning - Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning - Honda Accord MK8 2008-2012 Service ManualHonda Accord: A/C Refrigerant Oil Replacement

Recommended PAG oil: DENSO ND-OIL 8

P/N 38897-PR7-A01AH: 120 m l (4 fl-oz)

It is important to have the correct amount of refrigerant oil in the A/C system to ensure proper lubrication of the A/C compressor.

Too little oil damages the A/C compressor; too much oil reduces the cooling capacity of the system, and can produce high vent temperatures.

• To avoid contamination, do not return the oil to the container once dispensed, and never mix it with other refrigerant oils.

• Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.

• Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle; it may damage the paint ifitgeta on the paint,wash it off immediately.

Add the recommended refrigerant oil in the amount listed if you replace any of the following parts.

A/C condenser

(including Dryer

Desiccant).. 35 mL (1 1/5 fl-oz)

Evaporator 35 mL (1 1/5 fl-oz)

Line or hose 10 mL (1/3 fl-oz)

Leakage repair 25 mL (5/6 fl-oz)

A/C compressor         For A/C compressor replacement, subtract the volume of oil drained from the removed A/C compressor from 82 mL (2 7/9 fl-oz), and drain the calculated volume of oil from the new A/C compressor: 82 mL (2 7/9 fl-oz) — Volume of removed A/C compressor = Volume to drain from new A/C compressor.

NOTE: Even if no oil is drained from the removed A/C compressor, don't drain more than 50 mL (1 2/3 fl-oz) from the new A/C compressor.
