Replacement
1.
Recover the refrigerant with a recovery/ recycling/ charging station.
   
Do not use the same A/C recovery / charging station as conventional belt-driven compressors.
Since the electric compressor uses high-voltage, POE oil with high resistivity should be used.
If PAG oil mixes into the POE oil of the system, dielectric breakdown may occur due to decreased volumetric resistivity and the A/C compressor may not work.
2.
Drain the coolant.
(Refer to Traction Motor System - "Coolant")
3.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
4.
Remove the reservoir tank.
