    Capacity of a/c system when drained?

    Hi, can anybody help? We need to find out the drained capacity of the a/c system on a Astra 1.6, X reg. Basic engine. Halfords do a refill a/c can that holds 19oz. Is this enough to refill 2 cars, or just one?

    Thanks for the reply. If I change the compressor, will I lose all the gas?

    Yes mate, you'll loose all the gas, you'll need to get some oil aswell, 150ml of PAG, vauxhall should be able to supply it.

    You'll have to take it to a specialist as you'll need the unit vacuumed to boil off any moisture and get rid of any air.
