Question Recharging A/C?


I was wondering how easy this is to do yourself on the 2008 XE (V6)? I have searched the manual and it doesn't show where the Low Pressure Side Refrigerant Fill Port is, can someone point me to it please? Also, is there a specific type of refrigerant/Freon that I should purchase? Any other tools/equipment I'll need?

Welcome, please stop by the New Member section to introduce yourself.

It should be right in the front of the bay, a nipple looking thing. Just follow the a/c lines.

The hi and low side ports are of different sizes so the refill tube can only attach to the lo side port.

Follow the A/C lines per Goalie. Each will have a plastic screw on cover like a tire valve does.

The type of refrigerant should be specified in the owner's manual and on a sticker across the front of the engine bay.
