    Most garages can check your car for leaks - even tyre companies do it.
    Then you can decide if it's economic to repair.

    Or take a chance and regass system at @£50:00 and hope it lasts the summer.

    Do you have access to a good UV light?

    If so, get the bonnet open on a dark night & run it over the AC system - any leaks should show, as the gas usually has a green dye marker visible under UV. The usual culprits are the compressor (seals), the Condenser (maybe stone damage to the core) or pipework.

    Aah, there you are! . So, do I book it in at your workshop for a Saturday or do it at my work if I leave my keys? No playing though. It's too quick for you!

    Agreed condenser is the most likely leak point, often a detailed visual check will reveal an oily patch where refrigerant boiled off and the oil dissolved within is left behind.
