    It's 700g or R134a and 150ml of PAG oil for the compressor.

    That's off a Z18XE.

    EDIT://

    Just checked and the Z18XE uses the same compressor as the Z20LET, i'm not sure about the LEH though.

    I take it your still running the MK4 compressor?

    The 888 is using the ZLET compressor - but it's not for that - it's for my 2.0Di - is it the same do you know?

    That'll be an X20DTL i take it?, if so then it uses a different compressor so i couldn't be sure.

    I'll have a search about for you though.

    Have heard (by a fridge repair man...) that R413A is better? Repels moisture better (sorry for bad grammer!!)
