I see you're in Warrington. I'm in Lytham. I've just used a local guy (but his mechanic came from Penwortham so he might be happy to travel). He is the specialist that all the local garages near me call in (including my local independent Alfa specialist...) when they have an aircon repair.

I wasted £40 on a Halfords top up kit, only to have it all leak out again within 24 hours.

Called this guy in who came out and inserted ultraviolet dye to detect the leak. He pointed out which pipe was cracked, which I bought from my dealer & fitted myself. He then came out again, vacuumed the system, checked it holding its vacuum, refilled it properly with gas and then checked for leaks properly again, when it was running. Absolutely excellent job all for £80.

He also reset my airbag warning light for just an extra £20 whilst he was here!

If you PM me I can send you his details, or perhaps do what I did and go into your local independent car accessory shop and see if they can recommend a local specialist - that's how I got his card....
