    The proposed solution sounds great.

    The needed adapter seems to be a problem - there is a schrader valve in the low side service port but it seems to be a 1/2" ACME fitting. I found a 1/2" acme to R134A adapter made by Yellow Jacket and it fits the threads but its schrader valve pushes the original in before any charging hose can be connected and lets gas leak out. Any suggestions on where an adapter can be found?

    Thanks.

The factory doesn't provide a stand alone low side charging port, the only way I see to get to it is to take off the low pressure switch, and hook your gauges to the schrader valve. This will require an adapter, though.
On my diagrams it shows straight across from the high pressure port, and is the only opening to the low pressure line.
When you take it loose, jumper the terminals together in the wiring harness, so the compressor will still run and you can charge it.
On your car it is (low press switch) on the passenger side connected to the big AC line, in front of the firewall about 1/4 of the way from the firewall to the front of the car, under some hoses

Im looking for the low port to add air conditioning fluid to my 96 audi a4 (non quattro)


You need special adapter , available from dealer only.
Low pressure switch has to be taken out and adapter installed insted.
I also heard rumor that you can charge system through high side at 3000 rpm , but never tried it , sience I have an adapter.

I have a 96 audi a4 and i cant find the low pressure valve to charge my a/c


The larger line or low pressure line to the back of the compressor. Just to the side you will find the low presser connector should look like the pic. Now the high side connector is at the front of the car on the right hand side (passenger) at or near the condensor that sits infront of the radiator. For the low side connector look at the pic below of the compressor for you car. If you look at the back you will see a cap on a fitting there on the side that is were the connection is for the low side.

Audi A4 Ac charge valve.


On that year a4 and a6 there is no low side charging port. (sucks)
The way you charge those systems is by evacuating all of the refrigerant, then with the vehicle off, add the correct amount of refrigerant to the high side port (turning the compressor over by hand occasionally)

Repair shop can't find A/C pressure connections Audi 96 A4


The 1996 Audi A4 only has a High side refrigerant port. Right where you found it. Right side of radiator.
(Not to insult your intelligence. The passenger side of the car is the right side)

Look for the refrigerant lines going to the exchanger.
With this single port, you must evacuate the entire system, and replace the refrigerant with the proper amount.
(Obviously you can't refrigerant from cans, to the high side)

Your competent auto shop will have an evacuator, and charts to show the proper amount of refrigerant.

Wherer is my fuse box


Open the driver's door and look at the side of the dashboard. You'll see a funky-shaped panel on there. It has a finger-pull cutout in it. That's the fusebox cover. Pull it off and you'll see your fuses.

Low pressure valve in Audi A4 1996


Does it have a cycling low pressure switch in the low side line? If so remove it and charge through that port. Audi makes a tool for charging the AC.
