Passenger Compartment Air Filter

air that is pulled into the vehicle. The filter should be replaced as part of

routine scheduled maintenance. See

Maintenance Schedule 0 399.

See your dealer regarding replacement of the filter.


All vehicles have a label underhood

that identifies the refrigerant used in the vehicle. The refrigerant system

should only be serviced by trained and certified technicians. The air

conditioning evaporator should never be repaired or replaced by one from a salvage vehicle. It should only be

replaced by a new evaporator to

ensure proper and safe operation.


During service, all refrigerants should be reclaimed with proper equipment.

Venting refrigerants directly to the atmosphere is harmful to the

environment and may also create

unsafe conditions based on inhalation, combustion, frostbite, or other

health-based concerns.
