Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Important notes for working with the air conditioner service station

To operate the air conditioner service station -VAS 6007A-, the following must be observed (also applies to other and latest available air conditioner service stations).
→ Workshop equipment
The fitted filter and dryer must be renewed at the latest when the operational time specified in the related operating instructions has been reached.
Fill only with refrigerant oils which have been approved for the vehicle-specific refrigerant circuit.
→ Parts catalogue
Refrigerant that has been extracted may not be reused, even after cleaning within the station, in any of the following circumstances:
If there is damage to the air conditioner compressor, such that decomposition of the refrigerant due to overheating might have occurred.
If there are dark sticky deposits in the refrigerant circuit (these can be detected only by opening up the system).
If there is any doubt about the composition of the refrigerant extracted from the refrigerant circuit.
In all of these circumstances the air conditioner service station must be drained → Chapter, the system must be cleaned if necessary, the filter and dryer and also the refrigerant oil must be renewed.
Contaminated refrigerant can, e.g. in the Federal Republic of Germany, be returned to the supplier in so-called recycling bottles for recycling or for environmentally sound disposal (in other countries other or additional regulations may apply).
The commercially available air conditioner service stations can be divided into 2 groups:
A. Air conditioner service stations that clean the extracted refrigerant for reuse (so-called evacuating and recycling stations) e.g. air conditioner service station -VAS 6007A-.
B. Air conditioner service station, called extraction stations, that charge the extracted refrigerant into recycling bottles (for reprocessing in bulk).
