1993 SE A/C fill port locations please....

Recommended Posts

It appears that my A/C compressor is leaking through the compressor's bearing per the last shop's checking so I ordered a new one from JAE and it has NO fill ports on the backside like the one currently in the car and ergo, where to load the R12 back into the system. We have found a High pressure port underneath and to the ahead of the rear wheel arch but must have a real machine for that one to work. Is there another low pressure port there and I missed it? If no other way for another suction port , what would suggestions be? Thanks in advance. Too stinking hot here in the summer without fully working A/C system! Cheers to all.

Yes, there SHOULD be a low pressure port on the other (low pressure) A/C line in the same area. You have the engine bay undertray removed, right?


It's possible the low-pressure hose was replaced sometime during the car's life...

Ah ha! That is indeed possible. We looked but could not see one in that area although both hoses were located. Found the possible cure. JAE sent me a R134a compressor by mistake which apparently does not have the ports on the rear of the compressor so that should solve my problem. Guess I will find out once it arrives. Much thanks for your reply!
