Air con

Hey guys, my 3 was involved in a crash before i bought it and while trying to recharge the air conditioning i noticed i don't have a large port in my bay, I'm wondering if the 1999 e46 had the large port put somewhere else. If you know anything about this let me know, and if you have photos of your engine bay post em so i can see what is all going on in there.

where are you looking?
I believe it should be in the top left hand corner of the engine bay, Looks like it its coming out of the passenger compartment.
Thats on my 03' 330ci and my 04' m3...not sure ow your 99 would be.

that is considered the low side and i have that. The video i saw on youtube was of a 04?!?! but i wouldn't suspect they would change much on the AC side within the 5 years.

Dont have a pic of my engine bay, but I have a '99 as well, and the high side is right behind my right (when sitting in the driver seat) headlight. Was dealing with the a/c the other day so I am positive it's there.

low side (for charging yourself) seems to be on the passenger side firewall. High side is at the front by the radiator.
