Question about 2000 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab
Need to recharge the a/c on the GMC Sonoma. Where is the port located to add the 134 Refrigerant with lubricant
Why do you feel the system might need to retrofit? Since 1994, all vehicles sold in the US are required to use R134, which is the new style refrigerant.

The R134A refrigerant port is in the Engine compartment on the drivers side underneath the air filter compartment. Remove the cap off of the larger diameter line and attach refrigerant can with quick connect fitting.

If the dash is removed you've saved about 9 10ths of the job endurance. Look around, what you believe to be, the perimeter of the heater box. I cannot, and no one else can, tell you exactly where the bolts and nuts that mount the heater box are. Therefore you must viually sixe the box and check outide in the engine compartment and inside under the dash for the mounting bolts.You'll want to start by removing the heater hoses. Then starting at the passenger side engine compartment look for a group of 10mm or 7/16ths nuts retaining the housing and remove them. Do the same inside. The housing is usually held together with screws or clips, it changes year to year. Keep a log or pix of the wires and cables and hoses(vacuum) that are connected to the housing for reassembly. You'll need to "roll" the box out from under the dash depending on how much of the dash has been removed. The core is easy to spot for is has two hoses sticking out, and, is encircled with clips or screws . Also make sure you remove the bracket around the two entry hoses if it has one. Thank you, Dana
