found the bugger! for anyone looking for the high side / high pressure, service port / fitting on a w210 e300, e320, e430, it's located behind the fan shrouding under a small cover the to the left of the driver's headlight. attached is a picture of the cover in question and my fancy label i made.

SERIOUSLY???
wtf is MB thinking with that?!!!
having both ports is sure helpful to working on a/c... of course, if some neophite hooked a can of freon to the high side they could easily kill themselves... I suppose it's to prevent that kind of thing...

Amount of oil specs ? Have you flushed the oil out of your system so that you can install the correct amount ? Otherwise you risk overfilling with oil which is very bad, will kill your cooling....and perhaps damage some parts of your system....

i used a napa spec book, can't remember what the exact amount of oil it called out for. i'm ase cert. and know the risks of adding too much or too little oil.

do you care to post the specs?
it would be handy info to have here.
then again, how did you determine how much oil you were missing? and how much oil was in the system? weather or not any oil had been added in the past?

Unless you vacuum the system out, the specs wont be of much good to most of us.
