Question about 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio
Where is the lowside port located. is it the one on the left towards the driver side or is it the one towards the driver side?
It will be the only one the charge hose will connect to.It will need to be retrofited if you have the 134a charge hose,it is a quick connect,and r 12 ,witch your car came out with,are screw on fittings,the retrofits will have to be screwed on to use the 134a ,and they will only fit the service ports they are designed for.If this was helpful,at all,please rate.

The low side port of the 2005 GMC savanna Van is located on the low pressure side of the compressor.
This is found by locating the compressor driven by a belt that has a clutch that engages and disengages as the a/c cycles.
The low pressure piping is always in the larger diameter piping, and the high pressure side is always contained in the smaller diameter piping.
Therefore, follow the thick pipes from the compressor up to the accumulator, which looks like a large can of soup. On the accumulator receiver/drier is a port that connects to the tube that is connected to the can of r134a freon refrigerant.
Simply quick connect the tube to the low side port, which is located on the 'thick' tubing or on the accumulator and then fill until the low side pressure is 25 psi to 45 psi while the compressor is running.
When the car is off and the compressor is not running, the pressure should be 75 psi to 100 psi on a hot day.
Hopefully the system doesn't have a leak slow or fast in it.

SOURCE: i cannot locate the lowside
The low side will be the "larger" hose. If running and if there's enough freon in the system...the low side will be cool to cold. (just a precaution to ensure we're looking at the low side.)
Ive seen ports mounted directly on the compressor...on some models.
But look near the washer fluid reservoir.
