C5 mk1 2.2hdi aircon gas amount and valve location

Post by ml11ML »

Hi,

can anyone tell me the correct amount of gas (haynes claims 625g, some websites 650 to 700...) and where the fill valves are located? I assume under the car behind the plastic unless I somehow missed them up on top of the engine bay...

I can't tell you the capacity but the locations are on the early models in the pipes near the compressor and the later ones up close to the bulkhead behind where the water top up lid is. (LH side as you look at it.)
