Ok, so here's what I have found out ;

Low side port is Large bore pipe
High side port is small bore pipe

Really easy to recharge !

Problem fixed ? no .....

Tried to re-gas system but obviously have a leak somewhere as presure biult up to 20psi and then gradually dropped back down :-(

Can someone check for me - is the centre of the air con compressor , when it kicks in, rotating ?

I can't see any movement from the centre , so I'm assuming it's the clutch on the compressor at fault and i's seized.

Has anyone changed a compressor, what's involved ?
