    That question is also bugging me. Hindi kasi ako nagpapalinis ng aircon, eh.

    amacatan,

    Don't worry about springing a leak. Dalawa lang naman ang connection ng a/c evaporator sa a/c system plumbing. Both are hard lines with rubber gaskets.

    jayeina,

    Check mo muna kung bakit nabawasan. Mahirap yung dagdag ng dagdag tapos napupunta lang sa hangin.

    Check if your vehicle uses R12 or R134a

    This is one area na nagtataka ako kung bakit hindi magawan ng magandang design ng manufacturers: yung malagyan ng evaporator filter ang aircon na pwede tanggalin & linisin on a weekly basis then kabit uli (similar to a window type ac). This will lessen frequency of freon releasing sa atmosphere and maintain ac efficient performance.

    Yung corolla ko dati nasingitan ko ng s/s screen before the blower which somehow trapped dust before going to the evaporator. Cleaned the screen monthly kahit hirap tanggalin. This way, di ako nag-release ng freon. Di ko pa na-try sa XTO ko.

    Yung condenser naman, weekly pressure washing lang.

    Dudumi at dudumi kasi talaga ang evaporator dahil sa dust sa air kahit saradong sarado ang vehicle mo. Lalo na kung di regular ang linis ng car mats. Dust also enters doon sa vent kasama ng fresh air kung nagoopen ka ng vent. Ang masaklap nito e kung may kasamang small pcs of leaves.

    Is cleaning the aircon necessary? I believe the answer to that is YES. The frequency all depends on how keen the owner/user is in minimizing the dirt accumulation sa evaporator & condenser. Correct me if I'm wrong pero I believe dirt will also be the cause of the leak sa evaporator coils when it eventually reacts chemically with the metal. Pag ito ang nangyari, di lang linis ang gagawin sa ac mo, palit ka pa ng evaporator coil.

    Di po ako expert pero sana makatulong. Thanks.

    ang meron nito is yun bagong mitsubishi L200 pickup, where you could just pull the filter out without removing the freon, I also think that we should regularly clean our aircon, kung maingat naman yun gagawa and alam niya an ginagawa, I doubt it kung meron masisira or mag le-leak, siguro nagkataon lang na nagleak while you were having it clean, it also happened to me several times, it only means talagang masisira na talaga yun evaporator :D
