Okay so its just a bolt that screws into the compressor with a rubber seal on it?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
that's where it leaking
Expert:  Ron replied 5 months ago.

Okay from your description this sounds like the oil fill port used for when you add oil to the compressor . If its leaking then that usually means the seal is bad. The fix would be to evacuate the system and replace the seal and recharge the system if in fact that the bolts thats leaking.

Where would I find that seal

Any part store would have it, stop by your local part store and have them look at it and they can get you the seal you need.
