Hi...yes its a leak..any aircon service will put a leak finder fluid in and check with an ultra-violet light to highlite the leak....my 307 had a pin hole in the condensor thats behind the grille...have a lokk with a torch and look for any discoloration on the condensor,,

Take it to someone who can do a proper vacuum and pressure test as well as add fluorescent dye to the system so that the leak may be localised using a blacklight.

Thanks all

Have a slightly different issue now

After 5 days it's still holding pressure and seems to stay at the same

You press ac button and the compressor spins and the fan works but it doesn't get very cold the air con pipes do get a little cold but nowhere near what they should be

Any ideas
