If you get a recharge kit, I assume it is R134A all the refrigerant that is presently used, not R22. It's not hard to do (but of course should be done professionally with gauges by a tech who knows what it's supposed to read), anyway I disavow anything that I might tell you here, that may cause you to get hurt or worse,,,lol.
Once you find the right size connector in the engine compartment, that matches your kit, & bottle, I believe it goes on the larger gas line (low pressure), not the smaller liquid line (high pressure), start the car, & put the A/C on full then connect the lines, (hold the can upright so gas comes out, not liquid, this is important), then pierce the can, & open the valve the can will frost up while filling, be prepared. Continue to fill till the A/C gets cold inside, and, or, it stops taking the fill, then close the valve on the can, & undo the hose connection, if you need more then one can, repeat the procedure, until satisfied.
If anyone here that's more qualified would like to add anything, or correct me, please do, as I don't do this on a regular basis, although I think it's right.
good luck MIke
