with the warm weather we ve been having i tried my a/c the other day. when i brought the car 5 months ago it worked ok and i topped it up

i topped it up again and got the clutch to engage but theres obviousely a leak

inside the car if you put a/c on you can hear a hissing sound.

im not sure how complex the system is. is there any common failpoints

regards

The 3 i fixed it on have all had a tiny hole in the condenser.

If you top up than put it on AC on max cool for few minutes....
then shut engine off and go to the grille and listen closely...
You will be able to hear a small leakage in front.

That´s definatly the place to look.
Have a nice construction that allows the condenser to take stone chirps and so on to puncture the condense first rather than water radiator....

Seen some few cases with compressor failure but since yours engaged than could bet on the condenser!

mine seems to make a hissing noise inside the car. cant notice anything outside
Ok then i can only recomend to buy a UV trace bottle sells for around a tenner and when doing a little regassing you simply poor that along with your top up kit...

Thats the easiest way to know for sure were it leaks....

The only thing inside is the evaporator and to get to that is a dissmantling of complete inner panel so let´s hope it´s just a small leak on the outside...:)
