The diagram is not enough. I tried to find it with no luck. Youtube has a better and free answer.
I need specific location for the valve in my car. A photo of the engine of a similar car as mine showing the valve could be a better answer.

Hello, different tech here, the recharge valve is under the flap on the front passenger side of the radiator support, also on the drivers side fender area. i will attach a picture, sorry that last diagram was not accurate at all.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Man, as I explained before a diagram is not enough, I need a photo. Besides your diagram says it is for a C280 and my car is a 2000 C230. If you can not comply let me know so I look somewhere else.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 10 months ago.

You know if you would just go out to the car and compare the diagram you would see the valves. Valves are in the same spot whether the Inline 4 or inline 6. I will try one more time.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I still can not find where the gas could be charged, which I think should be the low pressure valve.. Repeat, repeat I can not work with diagrams for other cars.
