Question Acc Continued

Roncallo
88black560sl,

After looking further into the RED SL ( COOL ACC ) further I found that there are bubbles in the sight glass! The problem now is that I cannot purchase R12 refills, only R134 is available.Where can I get the R12 toped up??? Is R134 and R12 compatable?

Thands again Dual SL

no no , they are not, there is some aftermarket "mixable" stuff that is compatible but some AC techs say it may eat up the seals. I don't know about that but decided to use it in my 300SD and I have run it now for 2 years without issue.

There are still shops around that can recharge R12. You just have to look for them. Not all of them do.
