Just bought a 93 cabrio 2007 2.0 turbo
Great car but air con isn't working
Is a re gas the first step or is there any other way of checking the system?
In Spain so need this fixed.

Assuming fuses are all ok, the compressor will engage only if system pressure is within certain range, so it might be pressure switch. However many cars leak either slowly or fast if it was physical damage. You could just have it regassed and see what happens, or find the leak. My ‘04 9-5 needed a regas annually and I finally bit the bullet and got a specialist to find the leaks. It required compressor o-rings and a new condenser+dryer. So your choice is a short term temporary solution, or a proper fix!

Changing gas might help, but most probably the problem is more serious. I mean if the problem was gas, the previous owner would change it before selling, to sell it more expensive, so most probably something more serious happened with air conditioner. If the problem is not in gas you won't fix it alone, if you don't have a special education of course. If I were you I would ask guys from the socool.sg for the help.
