    Have the system evacuated by a shop. Change the o-ring. Use lube on the new o-ring. Do not overtighten; use the shortest wrench you have so you don't get too much torque on there. Take the car back to the shop, have them pull a vacuum, then have them add the correct amount of refrigerant (there is a sticker on the car with the info).

    Or just have them do everything. Changing the o-ring is minimal effort; the rest you'd pay for anyway.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
