There is no Freon in the system. If it needs R134 refrigerant then it has a leak that needs to be repaired. Take it to a professional with the knowledge and tools to repair this unit. the question was where do you add freon on a ford focus---taking it to a shop is not the question----where do you add freon under the hood ? The answer is A 2002 FOCUS DOES NOT USE FREON, so you cannot add any. Other than the obvious "your auto doesn't use freon" the answer is REALLY. That many mistakenly call all refridgerant "freon". It isn't. You can top-off your system easily. Go to an auto parts retailer and get an "AC Tune-up" product (Igloo and Interdynamics) markets them. It is usually a can of 134a with a short hose. On your AC system hoses you will see two screw-on plastic caps. One red and one blue. The blue is the low (service) side and the hose attached to the can will only fit the low side. Remove the blue cap, snap the hose onto the fitting and turn on the AC to MAX. Start the engine and introduce the 134a. The system will only take the amount it needs. If you have to do this repeatedly, have the system checked by a professional,,,,,Mark K ,,,,Raleigh, NC ==Answer == By the way, the part where you connect the hose(s) is right in front of the passanger tire,behind the tire well,remove the hex screw(use a small flat screwdriver,it does the trick) and you will see a round can with a cap on top of it, THIS IS WHERE YOU ADD REFRIGERANT TO THE SYSTEM!

You add the refrigerant through the low side service port.

User Avatar

You add refrigerant at the low pressure port but you do not add Freon. You add R134/134a. If you are having to add refrigerant then you have a leak that needs to be repaired first.

There is one valve that is used to add refrigrant. But you had better not add Freon. Freon is R12 and your vehicle's A/C system does not have Freon (R12) as a refrigrant. More than likely it uses R134a.

You need a refrigerant recovery system and gauges to do it properly.

Go to an autoparts store..perhaps Walmart would have it but... purchase a do it yourself pressure valve gauge to assist you. Just follow the directions on the can of freon it usually comes with and you can't go wrong. The gauge is interchangable with extra cans of freon if you need more than one can.
