Air Conditioning Gas Changes

As of 2017, a new type of air conditioning gas is required by law for all new vehicles. Regrettably, we don't stock the new gas, and are therefore unable to carry out Air Con Servicing on some makes and models.

As of 2017, a new type of air conditioning gas is required by law for all new vehicles.

The gas, called HFO-1234yf, replaces previous refrigerants, as it produces 98% fewer climate-damaging pollutants than its predecessor, R134a. Regrettably, Halfords Autocentres does not stock the new gas, and therefore is unable to re-gas vehicles that require it.

Some manufacturers made the switch a few years ago, and already require the latest gas when serviced. Below is a full list of makes and models (manufactured from 2013 onwards) not suitable for the Air Con Service at Halfords Autocentres:
