Can anyone let me know where to find the low presseure side A/C service fitting on a 1987 Club Wagon. It has front and rear A/C.

I assume there is only one service port despite the dual A/C, Is this correct?
Thanks...Paul

If the system has r-12 in it and you are not certified on R-12 systems forget it. You need to be certified to touch it.

There is a high and low service port. Check the lines to and from compresser.
Never attempt to recharge with one of them wall mart death kits.
You can not it safe or recharge without a high and low gauge recharge set hooked up.

If you are looking for the service port or wanting to recharge it I would suspect a major leak.
#1 Freon is non consumable, if it's not there then there is a leak
#2 A/C is a delicate balance between liquid/gas (low side/high side) and too much freon is just as bad as not enough
#3 If you are not prepaired to buy a set of A/C gauges, and be willing to possibly buy a vaccum pump or a/c die and replace the proper componets, then don't even waste your time.
#4 90% of the time your going to have to pull a vaccum, flush the lines and most the time replace the accumilator and the Oriface tube/expansion valve.
#5 The only easy fix is if one of the pressure switches is bad, there is no just add freon fixes.
#6 Please Please don't just add freon w/ a charging kit because you think it needs it, It doesn't work like that.
#7 These guys are a execlent source for help and if you listen to the procedures as you are told you will end up w/ some ice cold A/C, being hard headed is expensive.

#8 And here is a link from AC kits.com to what a person needs to recharge a air conditioning.

#9 Adding freon to a system that has a good charge can be dangerous and can cause you harm, if the pressures get to high and blow the freon can or something in the system.
