How do I recharge the AC on a 2008 Ford Explorer?

My AC hasn’t been blowing very cold air lately. How do I recharge the AC on a 2008 Ford Explorer so it can function properly again?

Great question—you’ll definitely want your air conditioning working by the time summer rolls around!
The best way to recharge the AC on a 2008 Ford Explorer is to purchase a car AC recharge kit online or at an auto parts store. They often cost less than $30 and are relatively easy to use.
For best results, follow the instructions provided on the packaging. But essentially, you’ll locate the low-pressure AC port under the hood of your Explorer. It will be near the base of the windshield on the passenger side. It should have a green cap with service port printed on it. This is where you will connect the AC recharge kit.
