Climate Control System Maintenance  
Air Conditioning  
To ensure proper and safe operation, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE  
J2845) recommends that the refrigerant system only be serviced by trained and  
certified technicians.  
1Climate Control System Maintenance  
Vented refrigerant is harmful to the environment.  
To avoid refrigerant from venting, never replace the  
evaporator with one removed from a used or  
salvaged vehicle.  
Never repair or replace the air conditioning evaporator (cooling coil) with one  
removed from a used or salvaged vehicle.  
Refrigerant in your vehicle’s air conditioning system is  
flammable and can be ignited during servicing if  
proper procedures are not followed.  
New replacement mobile air conditioning evaporators must be certified (and  
labeled) as meeting SAE Standard J2842.  
The air conditioner label is found under the hood:

Dust and Pollen Filter  
The climate control system is equipped with a dust and pollen filter that collects  
pollen, dust, and other debris in the air. The Maintenance MinderTM messages will let  
you know when to replace the filter.  
1Dust and Pollen Filter  
If the airflow from the climate control system  
deteriorates noticeably, and the windows fog up  
easily, the filter may need to be replaced. Please  
contact a dealer for replacement.  
We recommend that you replace the dust and pollen filter sooner when using your  
vehicle in areas with high concentrations of dust.
