Contaminated Refrigerant

If a refrigerant other than pure HFC-134a (R-134a) is identified in a vehicle, your options are:

  • Explain to the customer that environmental regulations prohibit the release of contaminated refrigerant into the atmosphere.
  • Explain that recovery of the contaminated refrigerant could damage your service equipment and refrigerant supply.
  • Suggest the customer return the vehicle to the location of previous service where the contamination may have occurred.
  • If you choose to perform the repair, recover the refrigerant using only dedicated equipment and containers.

    Do not recover contaminated refrigerant into your existing service equipment. If your facility does not have dedicated recovery equipment, you may contact a local refrigerant product retailer for available service.

    This refrigerant must be disposed of in accordance with all federal and local regulations. In addition, replacement of all refrigerant system components on the vehicle is recommended.

  • If the vehicle is within the warranty period, the air conditioner warranty is void. Please contact NISSAN Customer Affairs for further assistance.
