Default Home to drill into fridge side without hitting lines?

Need to put CO2 line through the side wall. I know I have to worry about coolant lines. How can I avoide them? Can I drill part way from the inside maybe and see if there's anything in the way?

What do others do?

Thanks.

I saw this video awhile back on youtube....he shows how to identify the line where it is on the top...I'm assuming it would work on the side line as well.

Many refrigerators have a liquid drain line in the back, you might be able to route your CO2 line in through there.
