Ok, Bose was available on SV and SL trims as part of the premium package. Leather was only on SL.

'15 SV and SL have the hybrid heat pump heater.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (former)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

The packages in Norway are different. We use the terms Visa, Accenta and Tekna. I think all of them have heat pump because of the weather up here. And off course winter package.

I could be mistaken, but since the entry level version was designed to sell at a lower price, with fewer features, I don't believe it has the heat pump. Most EVs don't have heat pumps at this point in time.

I found some articles from 2013 where is states that nissan leaf (visia, acenta and tekna) all have heat pump. Some cheap cars (like vw e-up) doesnt have heat pump. Even tesla doesnt have ev.
When you live in a northern country you need to have heat pump if you want to sell a lot of cars.

Oh. You aren't in the US? Those trim levels don't exist in the US.

For the US, model years '13 to '17, S trims don't have the hybrid heat pump heater. '13 to '17 SV and SL do.

See specs tabs of these, for example:
https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit
https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit

Yes, Tesla finally added a heat pump heater w/the Model Y, I guess starting in 2020?

E-up doesn't exist in the US.

you should not be attaching any wires to the AC fittings :roll:

It most like needs to be discharged, o-ring changed in the fitting and then re-service the AC Freon.

I locked it after 10 seconds and it is safe now. Just need to refill and pressure test the dealer said.

With modern refrigerants, refill means vacuuming out the refrigerant and then refilling the system from zero. The system takes a specific amount of refrigerant that must be measured by weight. There's no "bubble sight" to judge the fill as with the old R12 refrigerant.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I'd trust a good AC shop to do the right thing. The type of oil is important but they would know that. If the system needed to be emptied before being filled they should know that too. From my very limited understanding of AC systems, I'd be most worried about moisture in the refrigerant since the seal was broken. That indicates pulling a vacuum and then refilling. They might also recommend replacing the receiver-dryer in this case. If it were me, I'd find a shop I trusted, tell them what happened and have them fix it.

Fellow Norwegian here. The entry-level Visia-spec does not have heat pump, even in Norway. All Norwegian-sold Leafs do have the winter pack though, with heated seats and steering wheel.
