I need to replace...

I need to replace the a/c expansion valve on a 2015 Mustang. Is it located next to the firewall?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

Yes. Suction pressure was going down, 10psi. High side got up to 350 psi

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

So check the refrigerant level with gage

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The location of the expansion valve

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
