Should refrigerant flow out despite observing all the necessary safety precautions. ♦ If refrigerant gets onto other parts of your body despite observing all the necessary safety precautions. If the refrigerant circuit is opened in a service centre workshop.20 -----------. treat your eyes with eye drops and consult a doctor immediately even if your eyes are not painful. Notes: ♦ It is recommended to keep a bottle of eye wash for rinsing out eyes close at hand. Refrigerant gas is heavier than air.96 S00.50. This refrigerant will also be familiar from the trade designations H-FCR 134a or SUVA 134a available from Dupont (other trade designations may be common in other countries). rinse out your eyes thoroughly with water for about 15 minutes. Edition 08. The doctor should be advised that the frostbite has been caused by refrigerant R 134a.87-1 ------------ . these should also be thoroughly rinsed with cold water immediately for at least 15 minutes.5102. For this reason. always switch on the extraction facilities available and protect your hands with rubber gloves and your eyes with eye protection. If liquid refrigerant gets into your eyes. ♦ After this. do not inhale the gas/air mixture which is produced. Reason: The intensive effect of refrigerant on unprotected parts of the body produces frostbite. Observe the following safety precautions in respect of refrigerant R 134a (additional precautions and regulations may apply in individual countries): Should it be necessary to drain the refrigerant circuit for carrying out repairs to the vehicle. hand over the vehicle to an air conditioning service centre workshop! Reason: Only service centre workshops have available the suitable service stations in order to professionally extract the refrigerant. avoid any contact with liquid refrigerant or with refrigerant vapours.OCTAVIA Air Conditioning 87 Safety precautions when working on vehicles with air conditioning and when handling refrigerant R 134a The components and the pipe system of the air conditioning are filled with the refrigerant R 134a (Tetrafluorethane CH2F-CF3). colourless and odourless and thus displaces the oxygen present in the air without this being perceptible.

Refrigerant must not be stored in lower-level areas (e. the temperature of the components in the drying oven or in its preheating zone must not rise above max. Reason: The heating up of components produces a severe overpressure in the system which can result in the pressure relief valve opening. Although refrigerant is not a fire hazard. This also applies to welding and brazing/soldering work on the vehicle if there is a risk of heating parts of the air conditioning system.87 Air Conditioning OCTAVIA Work on the refrigerant circuit of the air conditioning system should only be carried out in well ventilated areas. Remedy: Damaged or leaking parts of the air conditioning system must not be repaired by welding or brazing/soldering but should always be replaced. without the persons present being able to sense the danger beforehand. Reason: Because of the high temperature produced by a naked flame or by hot bodies. Reason: Refrigerant is colourless and odourless. Extract the refrigerant from the refrigerant circuit beforehand using the service station (hand over vehicle to a service centre workshop). ------------   ¢ ¡ £ ------------ Edition 08.20 . or to carry out welding or brazing/soldering work in an area in which refrigerant is present. ensure that there is no assembly pit.

For this reason. An adequately large expansion area (gas cushion) has to be available otherwise the container will rupture if the temperature rises. Reason: Interrupting the voltage supply prevents the compressor being switched on inadvertently while the refrigerant circuit is empty.

This component continuously evaporates liquid refrigerant. The refrigerant gas together with the heat which it has absorbed is pumped out of the evaporator by the compressor. It is now considerably higher than the temperature of the surrounding air. It is necessary to remove part of the heat which exists in order to create comfortable temperatures on very warm days for the well being of the occupants. The refrigerant is thus a means of transporting heat. The higher-temperature refrigerant together with its heat content flows to the condenser where. The compression work of the compressor increases the heat content and the temperature of the refrigerant. a component is installed in the car which produces low temperatures. ------------   ¢ ¡ £ ------------ Edition 08.

Gaseous or vaporous refrigerant does not affect food and therefore does not render them toxic or unsuitable for consumption. leaks or deposits at the piston of the compressor.OCTAVIA Air Conditioning 87 Displacement of air by gaseous refrigerant Refrigerant gas is heavier than air and therefore spreads at floor level. Reaction to plastics Refrigerant acts as a solvent for certain plastics.g.50. which in turn reduces the efficiency of the cooling system. Such dissolved plastics may be separated out when they cool in the expansion valve and thus block the valve. above this temperature the refrigerant decomposes (refer to Combustibility).

Combustibility Refrigerant is non-combustible. Refrigerant is also split by UV light (as produced during electric welding).96 S00. Refrigerant is decomposed by flames and glowing surfaces. Filling factor A vapour space has to be present within the reservoir. The principal properties are the high solubility with refrigerant. In this case. because of the small quantity of refrigerant which flows out. Properties of the refrigerant oil An oil with special properties also circulates in the refrigerant circuit for lubricating the compressor. the refrigerant oil must not be disposed of together with engine oil or gear oil. it has a fire-retardant or fireextinguishing effect.50. To ensure that the reservoir is not overfilled.20 . Refrigerant oil has to be disposed of separately as toxic waste. The forces which are produced in such a case are sufficiently large to cause the reservoir to burst. The poly-alkylene-glycol (PAG) oils which are suitable for the refrigerant R 134a. are highly hygroscopic (water-absorbent) and cannot be mixed with other oils. Detection of leaks The refrigerant circuit may develop a leak. Edition 08. toxic split products (fluorocarbon and traces of carbonyl fluoride and fluorine) are produced. although the irritation of the mucous membranes does provide sufficient and timely warning. viscous and aggressive to metals. any opened containers should be sealed again immediately to prevent moisture getting in. specifications are laid down in the compressed gas recirculations in respect of how many kilograms of refrigerant may be poured in for each litre of internal volume of the reservoir. This “filling factor”. The liquid expands as the temperature rises and the space filled with vapour becomes smaller. multiplied by the inner volume. in the case of refrigerant R 134a.15 kg/ltr. Detecting minor leaks is only possible using an electronic leak detector. only a slight rise in temperature is sufficient to produce very high pressures in the reservoir because the liquid wishes to expand further but there is no more space available for this. For this reason.

♦ After completing repairs, always once again erase and re-interrogate the fault memory with the vehicle system tester V.A.G 1552.

♦ The fault type may also appear additionally in the fault table.

♦ If faults occur only occasionally, these are displayed as „sporadically occurring fault“ („SP“).

♦ All the possible faults which can be detected by the Climatronic control unit -J255- and displayed on V.A.G 1552, are listed below arranged according to the fault code.

♦ If a complaint exists regarding the Climatronic, but it was not possible to detect any fault, perform the function „Final control diagnosis 03“ ⇒ page 87-59 or the function „Read measured value block 08“ ⇒ page 87-64. If the display flashes although no fault has been detected, initiate one after the other the function „Code control unit 07“ and the function „Basic setting 04“ ⇒ page 87-61. It may then be necessary to carry out fault finding on a complaint-related basis without self-diagnosis.

1)

A fault is detected by the speedometer sender -G22- and not by the road speed sender -G68-. The fault is only detected if no road speed signal is measured during 5 driving cycles (start, driving at more than 15 km/h, switching off engine) within 4 minutes after start of engine.
