AC recharde tip

Trying to recharge AC on my E39 1997.
Bought standard recharge kit. Blue hose does not fit to the low side of AC.
Works just fine on Toyota. Do I need special adapter or I am miising something here.
Please help.

Do you have an R134 kit? How will you know how much to put in if it did fit?
Sounds like you are on the high pressure side or have the wrong kit. Those cheapo Walmart kits can get you in a lot of trouble, especially if you overcharge the system. Here is a good site to learn A/C...Arizona Mobile Air Inc. ( I have bought compressors, systems, etc from these people and they are very helpful.
