I want to refill the AC refrigerant for my exige v6 380, but my garage told me that the hose is bigger than normal, please tell which adapter/hose can be fit?

I don't know on the 380, but on the s2 Exige the suction hose is indeed large, but the fitting is a standard R134A fitting

I too dont know the 380, but A/C gauge fittings are standardized. If you are talking aboout the hose itself, removing it and taking it to a A/c specialist shop or hose shop and having them rebuild it is a good idea. You will get the hose faster and cheaper than a new one, and a good shop should do as good a job as a factory one. I know a privately owned one I use here in Phoenix, although I usually make some parts myself. Google parker store in your area and you may find one, thats where I get all my fittings and fuel and brake hoses, but they can build hoses too.

Just checked, garage said my car is using R1234yf, unfortunately it’s difficult to make it at Hong Kong. Is it possible to release all the R1234yf, and refill R134a instead of it?
