    WRONG

    That's the high pressure port. Prepare for a world of hurt if you try to recharge through that side (if you can manage to get the fitting on).

    The low pressure port is accessible by taking off the passenger side headlight, or taking off the inner fender well. This has been asked a few times before, so search if you want more details.

    I knew the easy one was the high.

    If you have a long enough hose, you can latch onto the low side port without taking anything apart. I did about 2 years ago to check the low-side pressure.

    did you find your low side port yet ? If you havnt, its on the top of the receiver/dryer, which is stuffed behind the front bumper cover, right hand side. Dont ask my why they put it there, i only work on them.

    I was gonna do it for a friend, haven't done it yet. I felt around up there but didn't feel it. I couldn't see it from the top either.

    Is the duratec and the zetec in the same place?

    the dryer is the tube on the pass side next to the rad correct.

    Yes, per second pic. You don't remove any parts but it helps to have long hose on your setup. Lay on your back to get to it, I do it all the time.

    Just reach up from the bottom of the car in front of the passenger tire. Much easier like amc49 said. Long hose helps and turn the wheels.
