FACTORY WARRANTIES ARE ENDING…ARE YOU READY?
Vehicle technology changes quickly, but so do regulations. Stay current in your knowledge with A/C Service Challenges – Today and Tomorrow, featuring Pete Meier and G. Truglia.
R1234yf systems, as well as certain heat pump designs used on hybrid and EV platforms, are coming out of factory warranty and headed to your shop for service and repair. New systems using R152a are around the corner, adding to the challenge of staying prepared to service your customer’s needs. Pete and G. will discuss all of this and more to keep you safe and effective in your service.
