Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Connecting air conditioner service station

For vehicles that have connections on both low-pressure and high-pressure sides of refrigerant circuit
Connecting air conditioner service station for measuring and checking
–  Switch off ignition.
–  Connect air conditioner service station to power supply.
–  Connect quick-release coupling adapters to charging hoses for air conditioner service station (handwheels not turned inwards, i.e. hand shut-off valves not open).
–  Switch on air conditioner service station and evacuate charging hoses (necessary only if there is air in the charging hoses).
–  Switch off air conditioner service station.
–  Unscrew sealing caps from service connections (with valve).
–  Connect air conditioner service station via service connections to the vehicle refrigerant circuit using quick-release coupling adapter.
–  Turn handwheel of quick-release coupling adapter inwards only far enough to ensure that valves on service connections are open (check using a pressure gauge; do not overstress valves).
–  Perform the intended measuring and checking work.

Checking for leaks
  Note The average air pressure of the earth's atmosphere at sea level is 1013 mbar and decreases steeply as the altitude increases (approx. 100 mbar/1,000 m altitude). Local and time fluctuations also influence vacuum generation. ...

Safety precautions when working on the cooling system
Risk of scalding by hot coolant When the engine is warm, the cooling system is under pressure. Danger of scalding due to steam and hot coolant. –  Always wear safety gloves. –  Always wear safety goggles. –  ...
