90 degrees out and i have no A/C!!!

My A/C is no longer COLD. It used to be cold, not as cold as my integra was, but it was cold last summer. Now it is just a litte cooler than putting on the vent. The compressor does kick on and it does get cooler but nothing like it should. The car is a 94 325is and it has 118,000. Im sure i just need a recharge right??? and if so where would i get this done?
Thanks for the help!

Do it yourself...

Do it yourself, its easy. Go to Walmart and get a R134 recharge kit, the one with the gauge on it. Stick that hose on your low pressure fitting (the one up by the passengerside firewall...)




The pic above shows the E36 A/C system low pressure service port, it has a black plastic cap on it normally. This is where you connect your R134 service kit to. Run the motor and A/C compressor and fill the system till you get 30-35 psi on the gauge. That's all there is to it. Put the cap back on when you're done.

The recharge kit should include refrigerant.
