With the right tools and some care, you can recharge your car’s air conditioning unit yourself and save money, too. This guide shows you how to do it.Watch the video tutorial by ChrisFix for Step-by-Step Instructions.

You should also check your AC system for leaks before getting started. A leaky air conditioning system can’t cool as efficiently running it without sufficient coolant could cause permanent (and costly) damage.
