Default low pressure ac fitting size

I just imported a 2004 x-type wagon and went to charge the ac. I cannot get the product to fit the low pressure port is there a difference in size between the us and can models?

It most likely has the Ford fitting ..it looks similar to the r134a fitting..but is slightly different..make sure you are on the low pressure side fitting..act110a is the snap on adapter..i do not know if or when Canada went to 134a..if you have the Ford fitting it would be original r12 I believe..if someone else knows different please correct me..ac work can be tricky

Sounds like you worked it out. For the benefit of others......
  • Jaguar, like most brands, makes the same car for US and Canada, built to North American Standards, aka NAS. Why? Canada's population is ~1/10th the size of the US, and ~90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the US. Plus some automakers assemble cars in Canadian plants for US and Canadian markets. So economics drive one NAS design for both markets.
  • All X-Types use R134A because they are 2001+. Automakers switched from R12 to R134A in 1992-94 iirc.
  • Always add Freon to the low pressure side - the larger diameter tube, not the high pressure, smaller diameter tube.
  • This post has a picture of the low pressure port where you add Freon (near the screwdriver tip), and also the high pressure point (to the left of the screwdriver, not for adding Freon): https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x...35/#post552770

Thank you for this great information. System was out of Freon, filled it last night and it dropped pressure. Used the second can today and it came and seemed to hold for the time being but no cold air, heard the compressor kick in. Will recheck pressure and if necessary check for leaks first.
