2016 XC90 Refrigerant Ports

Post by GOATCRF1893 » Thu Jun 27, 2019 5:36 pm

Hello! Drivers side AC is blowing hotter then the passenger side. Both sides however seem to be struggling to keep the car cool. I went and grabbed a can of R-134a thinking the system needs a recharge but dont know which port to use as they are literally right beside each other in the engine bay. Both have 6NM on the caps but one of the caps has 6NM written in yellow. After looking for hours online for a diagram I am SOL. Can anyone help me out! Thanks!

Welcome to MVS. Did you look under the caps? There's probably a port physical difference, making your choice simple. I suspect it's the one with the yellow writing.



All the low side ports I've ever seen have yellow writing. https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forum ... hp?t=21308

The ports are different sizes. Low pressure is the smaller of the 2.
