There are 2 ports on the vehicle. They both have blue caps. One is the low side, and one is the hi side. You can buy a can of refrigerant with the gauge and connection on the can. I reccomend this. Remove the blue cap from the low side, start vehicle, and run A/C on hi. Connect the can to the adapter and press the button. It is full when the gauge is in the green zone. Do not overfill
