I am guessing item number 7 is the pressure in bar, correct? I don't have the list off hand, it's in my visor in my car. Now, can we tell if there is a leak or not by monitoring the pressure? What seems to be the "normal" pressure range and what pressure should we be concerned with? Anyone know? Hopefully Steve B will come and help us out.
And Benzfan, I agree with John S. on trying to put the blame on one of the AC shops.... though I'm assuming that would be rather difficult, but it's definitly worth a try and some persistence (for the $2100!)!
