Question about 2004 Ford Focus
This is really a fix for a shop, but what you are looking for is a fitting that looks like the air valve on a tire... but be careful, there is also a similar fitting on your fuel rail. The fitting you are looking for should be on the A/C line near your condenser (looks like another radiator) or near the dryer (which looks like a tall can).

YOu should not have to add FREON. You car has has a r134 A/C system.
Is there a problem with the A/C?

It in the passenger side wheel wel. Take the plastic off thats infron of your front passenger tire and you'll see that ac refill. Very simple. 1, maybe 2 screw/bolts, then 2 plastic "mumch screws" not sure there name but u pop the center out first and then pull out the whole plastic "screw thing". Hope this helps

Stan and Justin are both correct, the low side port, which is the one you want if you're just going to add some freon, is located in front of the passenger front wheel well and although not the most convenient location is still easily accessible. However, if you are low on Freon then you must have a leak. It is probably best that you get it to a licensed repair shop and have it checked otherwise you'll just have to keep adding Freon.

I would check the blue doohickey that is right next to the kabonkulater (its the one with the blue cap that says pour freon here). It is located right above your blinker fluid bottle towards the windshield. I had this same problem in my latest F430 and after checking that it wasnt my issue so i refilled my coolant and that defiantly made a significant difference in the temp of my A/C. Also be sure to get out your battery charger because it will need to be recharged as well. I wish you the best of luck with your Focus i have always admired Ford's ability to create quality vehicles. Evacuate the A/C system for at least thirty (30)
minutes to a vacuum of 29 in. Your R134 system does have faults but you can sure fix them. What happened to the good old days of r12 and freon.
