Follow the larger hose from the a/c compressor Maybe near the drier at the passenger firewall

The mirror needs to be removed from the inside of the car, the plastic molding that goes between the dash and the roof of the car needs to be removed, then you can remove the …screws that hold it in, but if it is a power mirror, you will need to disconnect the wiring harness, the wiring harness should be nearby.
Answer . \nthe low side is on the left after the condensor the high side is located near the battery
as far as i know it on the vac by the firewall left side
Answer . \npassenger side of engine compartment. big round silver or blac colored can should have a blue colored cap to unscrew.
Answer . Follow the larger hose from the a/c compressor
I am not sure about an 89, but on my 93 E350 it is located on a pipe that runs from the compressor, up over the engine to the passenger side. The funny part is the valve "T's"… off the pipe towards the side rather than the front(which would make it easier to access. Anyways just follow the pipe with your hand and you'll probably run right into the valve, in my case it wasn't very apparent just looking for it. It is attached to the a/c dryer on the passenger side front fender well.
The high side of an a/c is as follows:. The compressor ,the capillary( the capillary is a very narrow tube with an inside diameter about the size of a pencil point. )The cap …tube is factory sweated to the return line from the evaporator to cool it down. As soon as this cap tube reaches the coil of the evaporator, the tube is much larger in diameter. This causes the freon to expand and it changes from a gas to a liquid. It is very cold and starts to attract warmth from the room. You will notice a small frost line which will rapidly melt because the freon used in an a/c boils at a lower temperature than the freon in a refrigerator. This sweating will continue to cover more of the evaporator, which is the low side because the pressure drops. When it reaches the evaporator, as the freon leaves the evaporator, it enters the suction line. It then goes back to the compressor where it is pressurized back through the cap tube again. This cycle is repeated again and again. So on the high side,, you have the compressor and the capillary tube and on the low side the evaporator and the suction line. It sounds complicated, but is really a very simple continuous cycle at a very fast speed.
The Low side line attaches to the compressor on the driver side of compressor. The charging port faced forward. The high pressure port faces up.
I have been told by a mechanic that the gas tank has to be dropped to replace the passengers side brake line. I am currently looking to see what all is involved to do it
Simply ,the bigger of the 2 going into the out side/inside unit,and if running in summer,cold and sweating.
low side service port should be located against the firewall off of the accumulator
It is on the receiver dryer or shiny looking can at the right rear of the engine compartment. You need gauges to correctly add refrigerant.
on the canister by the firewall on the passengers side
Just look for small silver pipes, they'll have 2 little black plastic caps on them, it's perfectly safe to take them off; the smaller port under the cap is the low, the larger… one is the high. You usually find the low port somewhere more towards the windshield.
From the metering device outlet to the compressor inlet, just like every other automotive AC system.
