    I think I'd be inclined to have the system recharged before looking for problems.

    From reading other threads apparantly a dye is used during the process to indicate leaks.

    Start here and post your results to keep us informed

    I've heard that it is more recommendable to go to a specialist. Approx cost is apparantly around the price of £50

    Yes it is better to have it done properly, the system should be evacuated first which those kits won't do

    At least by having the system evacuated first you know you'll be getting a positive recharge and it should eliminate or highlight any concerns that may exist within the system.

    If you DIY it then it may not rectify the problem and it may point you away from the problem and cause you to spend money on replacing parts that aren't faulty.

    Also one of the reasons you evacuate it is to rid the system of any moisture that has built up inside that will damage parts like the evaporator.
