AC Not Cold Due to Leak From Condenser on Pontiac Montana

The AC may stop working due to a refrigerant leak from the condenser. GM has developed and updated condenser and mounting bracket to help prevent the replacement condenser from failing in the same manner.

I had air conditioning recharged; it only worked for a short time. Recharged it again this year; only worked for about 2 weeks. I have not had anything else done to fix the problem.
