How do I re-gas my aircon unit?

I have a guy at work who can re-gas my aircon for me - problem is, we tried yesterday and the aircon wouldnt turn on. The aircon clutch would not engage to draw in the gas. How do I go about engaging the aircon clutch? I had the same problem on my E30 - it was a question of bridging some wiring.... Dont want to mess anything up here!

maybe your aircon motor/pump is dead? does your switch in the cabin work?
