I have a 2000 Ford Focus with a slow leak on the air-conditioning
system. My dealer quoted $1,250 to replace the compressor, condensor
and a bunch of other stuff as they cannot find the leak ( even with
dye in the system ).
My local Autoparts store sells a kit that includes two canisters of
refrigerant + a canister of leak sealant that they claim has been very
successfull for cars like mine with a slow leak.
My problem is that I cannot finds the High and Low pressure top-up
points in the air-conditioning lines. Both my other two cars have
these valves easily identified at the top left of the engine
compartment, but I can’t find them anywhere on the Focus, even though
I traced the hoses.
I have an aftermarket Haynes manual, but it is very vague and suggests
that AC problems should be sent to the dealer.
Does anyone know where to top up the refrigerant on a 2000 Focus ?
Thanks for your help.
