I wouldn’t be so sure about the compressor. There has been a whole raft of issues with air conditioning on these cars and none have been compressor related from memory. They were all condenser or evaporator related. Secondly, there are strict procedures for re gassing which requires the system to be fully evacuated first then the correct weight of refrigerant to be added. It’s up to you but you might be wasting a lot of time and expense doing it. I’d follow the testing route suggested above.
