NOTE: LHD model with 4.7L engine shown. RHD model and other engines similar.

The A/C suction line (1) is the refrigerant line that carries refrigerant from the A/C evaporator, through the A/C expansion valve (2), to the A/C compressor (3). The A/C suction line includes the low side service port (4).

NOTE: Replacement of the refrigerant line O-ring seals and gaskets is required anytime a refrigerant line is opened. Failure to replace the rubber O-ring seals and metal gaskets could result in a refrigerant system leak.

The A/C suction line has no serviceable parts except for the O-ring and dual plane seal, low-side service port valve and protective cap. The seals used on the connections are made from a special type of rubber not affected by R-134a refrigerant. The seals must be replaced whenever the A/C suction line is removed.

The A/C suction line cannot be repaired and must be replaced if found to be leaking or damaged.

Just don't over pressurize the system, you can blow the seals and damage the compressor.
