There is a right way and a wrong way to fix air condition problems. This article covers the right way to service A/C systems according to the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS). Although these service and repair guidelines are intended for professional technicians, they also apply to do-it-yourselfers.
If you lack the know-how or proper equipment to fix your own vehicle, our advice is to seek out a repair facility that is a member of MACS.
The recommendations for fixing A/C problems the right way cover the following topics:
A/C Service (general)
Field Repair and Assembly of A/C Hoses
A/C Equipment Maintenance.
