Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country

Air conditioner leak

We charged the a/c and found a leak from a black box located behind the rear passenger tire. I have no idea what the black box is and when I called the service department at the dealership, He told me I was crazy, there was nothing there relating to the air conditioning. However, when we charged the a/c, there was no mistaking where it was coming from - unless there is a line behind it that we couldn't see...
Service told me to bring it in so they could see what I was talking about, but for them to look at it, they wanted $90 up front. Highway robbery! I want to know what the black box is.

Sounds like a cracked evaporation canister on the rear a/c.

The service writer at the dealership you contacted has one function at the dealership, to make money. They would like to do a diagnostic on your vehicle so that they have an opportunity to sell you service on the items that are bad. Most of them have no experience as a mechanic. if you have any direct questions. Please leave me good feedback if you feel I helped you. Regards, AL

Sometimes though it may be worth it to pay a diagnostic fee rather than just spending money on parts. Part replacements to fix an undiagnosed problem can get expensive. The good news is that if your problem is the evap canister it is a cheaper fix than the compressor.

    I have the same leak. That black box is the expansion valve for the rear a/c. I would like to find out what type of seals/o ring/ gaskets are in there before I try to take it apart. I am getting sick of adding gas to it every couple weeks.

Its a air suspension comprssor for a 93 lincoln mark 8 were on the car is it located

The air suspension compressor is located on the passenger side of the car in front of the tire. To get to it, you must first lift the front tires off of the ground, remove the front passenger tire, and then remove the plastic skirt found behind the tire. After this is done it is easy to see the compressor which is found towards the front of the car, mounted just behind the skirt. I hope this helps

Where is fuel filter on 1998 Volvo S70 non turbo?

The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow. Good luck and hope this helps and no smoking please LOL

Where do I connect a hose to charge the air conditioner on a 2001 focus

You need to connect it to the accumulator. It is in the fender on the passenger side behind the headlight. Jack up the passenger side and look up from the bottom infront of the passenger side tire.
