Yup, that's where mine leaked all the oil out of the system when the sedan
compressor went kablooey the second time.  The shop that did mine
re-O-ringed it and it was fine afterward.

If others on the list pull the rain splash pan loose under the hood and see
dirt around the junctions of the A/C hard lines (the leaking oil attracts
the dirt), you probably have a leak that needs to be fixed.  Compressor is
many dinero.

BTDTDWGB - been there, done that, don't wanna go back.
