Post  Red944ls1 on Mon Jun 17, 2013 6:48 pm

Hey Guys -- I am getting ready to plum ac lines and I wanted to know exactly what I was looking at.  In the picture...what is the item circled in red -- and what are the lines circled in green ( which is which). 

Lastly -- where is the expansion valve located.  I have a 1984 944.

What year model car is it that you are working on?

The red circle looks to be a vacuum actuated solenoid for one of the control doors.

The lines are you ac lines , the large one is the suction line and the smaller one is the pressure, but I need to know what car we are working on to get you all the info you need.

Those are lines for the AC unit.  The expansion valve is in the black blower box in the background of this picture.  You need to totally disassemble it to get to the valve.  Good luck!!

Where

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Jun 18, 2013 12:52 pm

Where are these lines located? Are they under dash?
My 88 has bulkhead ac fittings co located with the vacuum line connections.

Late models (85.5 up) do not have these fittings, the firewall ones are what we have to deal with.  All I did was adapt the suction side, by brazing a crimp to rubber hose fitting.  I used the high pressure as is.

Fitting

Here's what the fitting I used looks like.  It's a bead lock crimp fitting on one side, the other side brazes to the A/C line.

Leak

Post  87-944S on Tue Jun 18, 2013 8:47 pm

That's where the evaporator is, get a UV leak detector kit (I got mine for $50 on Amazon, covers A/C, coolant, oil, etc) and go hunting.  Good luck!
