2002 Kia Sportage A/C recharge

Trying to recharge my A/C. There appear to be two locations that have black caps that when removed look the same. Don't know which one I would use for the recharge. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Don't take this wrong, but that's one of those things that if you have to ask you probably shouldn't attempt. I wouldn't recommend a DIY on ac charging; among other things a leak check would be a good idea to avoid wasting time on a recharge that will leak right back out. You may have something as simple as a leaky hose but you need the proper test equipment to find out.

Going on with what tow said, it could also be the front seal on the compressor itself leaking, the condenser leaking, or the evaporator coils leaking. It would be best to find out where the leak is by a professional so that it can be properly fixed.
