Ok Lets start:
First clean the fins on the condenser (like I said earlier go to your nearest tire shop and ask them to do it with care)
Then we are going to find the port where we are going to charge the system, the low port is on the pass. Side close to the firewall on the FAT hose and usually is partially hidden by a wire harness.
Once you find it, engine at idle.A/C set to NORM. Blower on high. Temp set to full cold. Connect your hose and attach The R134A can and add the refrigerant (follow the instruction on the can), to the system until the compressor stops cycling on/off. Then fill in small stages. Pausing 30secs between each addition of Refrigerant until the gauge reads in the norm range.
Usually they sell a kit with a hose (with pressure gauge) and a couple of cans of R-134A and instructions.
Remember you should charge the gas on the LOW port.
That should do the trick.
Let Us Know about any question!
You may need a cycling switch but do the cleaning and recharge first.
