Anyone recharged their own AC? I've read the service manual, but can't find the low pressure quick connect port (supposedly right front of engine bay). Anyone know where it is exactly?

That's a mistake/typo in the manual (discussed a long time ago).
The valve is actually located in the RF wheel arch (accessible after you remove the liner ;))

Doh! Thanks! Well that makes me feel a bit better that I'm not totally blind, though apparently my forum search skills could be improved.

I highly recommend not to use the little cans from autozone or similar places. Use an actual a/c machine if you can gain access to one.

I think the cans are fine, but you need a vacuum pump, a set of gauges, and a scale is usefull.


You can buy this stuff at harbor frieght for 200$. You tube has alot of good videos on AC service. It is not rocket science and is fun to learn about.

In houston, with 4 family cars, none of them that new, I use the ac equipment about once a summer. I have saved alot of time and money by buying the service tools.

Lynn,

If you decide not to go the DIY route, I had mine in Monday for a recharge. They did it quickly without issue. It is ice cold now.
