I was very fortunate, About a half can of R34 took care of my problem..[I got a 01 SSEI].

Obnoxus,
I wouldn't beat yourself up too much, I've been in your shoes MANY times..
I think your neighbor owes you dinner, [at least].

I have this same problem. Just so I understand, Why would a charge effect having cold air on pass vents, but not drivers? I would think the system would have the same temperature out of both sides with a low charge. Is there something electronic that makes this happen? If any one knows I would be very grateful Thanks!

because of the dual climate controls,,,, each side of the car draws off of half of the condensor just happens to be the lower runs the pass side of the car

Makes perfect sense. Thank you very much. After taking the lower dash apart and seeing everything function smoothly, I believe I will give a small charge a try.Do you know what the low pressure should be roughly @ 100 degrees out side standing still? I believe the high side should be roughly double the out temp. I will also cool the condenser with a hose to check the pressure drops. Thank you very much!!
