Dear Bitter bastard. :)
I was in the same boat a few years ago and there is some very good news
for you. Taking the condenser out is a 20 minute job, its really easy.
Once you get it out, bring it to your local rad repair shop. I did, about
3 years ago or so and its been PERFECT ever since. Never even needed a
recharge over the years.
Second...the switch to R134 is nothing short of miraculous. For the local
shop to repair 4 o-rings, do the conversion and fill it up was under
$200. It hasnt lost any efficiency either, its pretty darn cold...
So for a grand total of $230 I was up and running again.
