    Yeah I have the same issue as you got have to replace both the aircon radiator dryer and refill so it'll be empty....

    Mine is bed out of shape since I had the car and although there is some pressure left in the system it doesn't work properly now.. so I suspect it leaking... I'll replace the lot and do as you did it'll set me back less plus with owning the trigger it'll just be added to my toolkit.. I'm going hunting for the parts.

    Thanks for the replies @Vwdub2000 and @LastOne

Is that what you're getting at Nick?
    Yes, that's what I'm getting at.

    I do my own refrigerant recharging then I know for certain it's done right and I can take my time doing it.

    Even with my Halfords trade card, the canister and trigger hose work out at £64, which is the same as many garages charge, plus they will measure the gas by weight (which is written on the slam panel of the car) rather than by pressure.

    Tell the MOT place the exhaust hanger was there when you drove the car in and if one of the staff have stolen it then the company owes you a brand new exhaust. Oh and insist the new one is stainless.
