You may have to replace the o-ring or gasket but first you would have to have the system evacuated as it illegal to let it go in the atmosphere. Then, replace the O-ring/gasket pull a vacuum on the system to remove any moisture inject the right amount of refrigerant oil and then charge the system with the proper amount of refrigerant. If you do not have the right equipment to do this job bring the vehicle to a professional where they can further assist you. It is important to remove the moisture from the system as it may cause performance issues and even damage later on.
