It's been 6 years since my Sera blew cold air ... I was sure that updating it would be very expensive and most of the advice I found was leaning towards converting it to R134a. I finally got round to doing some deep research and after a few false starts I found Auto Climate Control in Swindon

 

The guy had never even seen a Sera but in about an hour he had tested it with Oxygen Free Nitrogen (OFN), vacuum tested it and charged it with RS-24. I though I was going to freeze to death on the way home - it's way colder than my Peugeot 206 which runs on R134a and recently serviced and recharged.

 

Cost: £116 inc VAT .................... Way chuffed!

Nice find!

I tried to be stubborn and install an phase 3 A/C compressor in my Phase 1 sera but I can confirm the A/C pipes are different as well and won't fit. (later version uses a larger diameter coupling)

Instead I'm giving this conversion procedure a try (Although the Sera isn't in there I'll try the Paseo/Tercel route)...
