    Are you talking about the low pressure switch for your A/C? if so it should be attached to your accumulator/dryer. I'm not sure where this is on a 01 burb, but on my 95, 1500 its on the passenger side firewall. The LPS should be attached by a threaded schrader fitting so screwing it off and screwing a new one on should be all it takes. But verify that it actually has a schrader fitting in place or you'll blow the charge when you pull it!
