Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Refrigerant Filter, Replace

Caution: Air conditioning R-134a liquid refrigerant is capable of harming eyes or freezing skin. Always wear safety goggles and avoid contact with liquid refrigerant. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.
Caution: Air conditioning R-134a refrigerant gas is capable of displacing the air required for breathing in a confined space and can produce toxic gasses if burned at high temperatures. Do not release a large quantity of R-134a gas within a confined space or allow it to be exposed to a high temperature flame (such as a torch). Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet for further information. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death.
Caution: Use extreme care and observe all safety and service precautions related to the use of refrigerants as outlined on refrigerant tank and on recovery and charging equipment. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.
Your vehicles air conditioning system relies on A/C compressor oil to be circulated throughout the system and maintain compressor lubrication. In fact, the A/C compressor and the seals are the only reason for A/C oil. There are no other components that require lubrication, and on orifice tube systems, the A/C compressor is the only moving component.
When the air conditioning system starts to get contaminated, harmful acids are formed. Those acids cause corrosion and debris. That corrosion easily can restrict an orifice tube or expansion valve. When that happens, the flow of oil to your compressor stops.

Removal

1. Recover air conditioning refrigerant with a suitable air conditioning station.
2. Remove front evaporator tube.
