Before continuing you will need the following:
R-134a Service Kit that includes R-134a canister, color-coded pressure guage, and valve assembly. (Can be purchased at Wal-Mart or any auto-store).
Where is the service port?
To better explain where the low-side service port is you will need to be sitting in front of the forward wheel on the passenger side. As you are facing the wheel, look to the right of the wheel where the protective side wall is firmly placed. There a screws holding the side wall in. In the trucking industry the forward flaps are called "splash guards" and the rear flaps are called "mudflaps". In order to recharge your a/c you need to remove the "splash guards" or at least pry it open to get behind it. You see some screws that require a special screw driver in order to remove them. That special screw driver is called a torx bit. Once you remove the torx screw you will be to pry open the splash guard and see that the freon reservoir and service port is located just behind the wall.
Follow the directions that came with your kit and presto you got cool air again!
Sounds like you just need a recharge, as you are trying to do. I'm sure somebody has a Chilton's and can look it up for you. I keep meaning to buy one but can't seem to remeber when I'm in the right place. I bought the service maual on Cd on ebay, but now can't find it... Figures... first time I would have had a "real reason" to use it...
