Have a look in yellow pages (or yell.com) for auto air con speciallists. You should find a couple in your area - some even come to you. They should be cheaper than the stealerships.

If yuo have no idea what you are getting into then back off and get a 'pro' to do it for you.

the tin can must be connected into the compressor inlet side low pressure or you will be in danger of releasing the high pressure side into the can.

The two valve allow the pro to connect his twin pressure gauge set up to your car and balance the inlet and outlet pressures to correct levels.

this was common practise out in Saudi Arabia. Those cars had a viewing window which allowed you to see the bubble sin the liquid. Engine was running and can connected and valve opened until bubbles stopped.

There's no point in having it regassed unless you're 100% certain that it is leak free. Regassing is one of the few jobs that I recommend farming out unless you have the proper equipment. Replacing components is DIY-able once the system has been emptied of refrigerant. I had to replace the condenser on my C4GP. When I removed the top connector, it broke off right at the end due to electrolytic corrosion so I had to replace that section of high pressure pipe which ran from the condenser to the matrix at the bulkhead. Once I'd fitted the replacement parts, I had it recharged at my local Kwik Fit and it has been fine ever since.

And that's the catch 22- if it needs regassing there is only one certainty- it's leaking!

But there again, you need to regas it with UV dye in, so you know where the leak is....   then regas again once it is (hopefully) fixed..  :)
