    Help! Incorrect Freon in AC Lines

    I inadvertently had R134-A with PAG oil added to my 2014 Model S AC system and now the AC is working intermittently. I know now this is the wrong type of Freon and can be damaging to the compressor. The question I have is: what options do I have now? (1) Can the Freon be vacuumed out and...

This is regardless of whether or not my A/C is...

As it is quite cold in Sweden now it is tough to do a complete AC test. Tesla SC may want go exchange the complete compressor but I have 300miles to nearest...

    AC Compressor, PTC Air Heater, and Body Control Module

    I've got spares from my EV Conversion project (TesLorean - Delorean with Tesla technology) that I cannot use (PTC too large for DeLorean, AC Compressor is CAN driven, BMC not needed). All the parts come from a salvaged 2017 MS 70D. Note : the AC Compressor and PTC Heater are CAN controlled...
