When the high pressure refrigerant leaves the compressor it will leave the compressor through a line. This is a manifold line assembly. It will be the high pressure side as the smaller tube where it goes to the condensor just in the front of the vehicle. And this particular one it has a service port. Both service ports are on this line assembly. This is where the freeon will be added or removed. The airconditioning system is a cycle or circle and we had to start somewhere so I started with the compressor. Where the refrigerant gas gets compressed goes through the high pressure line through the condensor through the dryer back around into the evaporator coral where it becomes a low pressure gas then comes back through the return line. This is the return line that comes off of the evaporator. You'll have a low pressure of gas that returns to the compressor to be compressed again. Then the cycle will repeat itself
