+ and -? There is a low side of the system and a high side of the system. Unless you have the right equipment and know what you are doing, I really don't advise messing with it. You can not only get hurt but do a lot of damage to the system. Those kits they sell at the parts stores are death traps. If you overcharge the system, you could destroy the compressor and there is no way to know if it's overcharged.
