    Astra mk4 Aircon

    i have a 2000 model 2.0 sri
    when i switch the aircon it does not seem to get any colder
    i was told the aircon would need regasing which should be done about every 2 years
    he said it's probably never been done and if it leaked a little bit out and was about 3/4 full that would stop it kicking in.
    does this sound about right or is he telling me a lot of rubbish
    any help would be cool on this guys
    thanks in advance
    Darren
