Dear all !

I had my A/C recharge with Substitute Gaz (R409a also called Forane FX56) by a specialist.
The A/C was not very cold so I decided to turn the "H" Valve (not clockwise) to get more fluid... !!! Mistake !

You certainly know the result, there was liquid yellow and Gas was coming out from the back of the compressor (A590 or 6C17).

I want 2 know 2 things :

- Do you know how to screw the "H" Valve to his original position or to adjust it manually ? (or I have to buy a new one)
- Know when I Charge the A/C, there is a leak from the Safety pressure relief Valve of the Compressor
do you know if it is easy to find this spare parts ? (NIPPONDENSO Compressor ? )

Thanks for your Help

Second Question about optimisation of the Compressor :
- Does Someone has done that process to optimise cooling with Compressor Denso 6C17 ?
