Aircon repairs...

Having a bit of an issue with my aircon. Thats a big worry here in the middle east as its very hot.
Have charged the gas in the system about twice now and it works, but after a week or so, you feel the cooling gradually decreasing. My first instinct would say leak, but my mechanic said that there was none according to his system. Another problem would be the condenser or a valve.

Any ideas???

Could be a small leak in the condensor between that and the rad. Would be hard to spot or track down. They should be able to add a test fluid that shows up under u/v.

Yes, definitely a leak. Take it to an aircon specialist if your regular mechanic can't figure that out...
