2016 Honda Civic AC Recharge: A Comprehensive Step-by-Step Guide

Today, we are going to walk through the process of recharging the AC system on a 10th generation Civic. You will only need two things for this task, which can be easily obtained from Amazon or your local auto parts store. First, you will need a recharge kit specifically labeled as “r1234yf.” Additionally, you will need the corresponding refrigerant labeled with the same “r1234yf” designation.

Before starting, ensure that you have the necessary equipment and then follow these steps to successfully recharge your AC system:

  1. First, turn on the car and the AC, setting it to full blast.
  2. Open the hood and locate the low-pressure port, typically situated on the passenger side of the vehicle.
  3. Using the recharge kit, check the pressure in the system by connecting it to the low-pressure port. If the pressure is low, you are ready to proceed.
  4. Install the refrigerant can into the recharge kit, ensuring it is securely attached.
  5. Connect the recharge kit to the low-pressure port and begin recharging the system, monitoring the pressure as you do so.
  6. While recharging, check the pressure gauge and turn the can to fully dispense the refrigerant.
  7. Once the refrigerant level is in the green zone, disconnect the hose and check the AC system inside the car to ensure it is blowing cold air.
