I recall that you had a broken motor mount. Hopefully you've got your motor mount fixed because it is likely the cause of your problem. Broken motor mounts break the A/C line. Maybe someone here can help us with where the line breaks/what needs to be replaced/repaired.
In terms of how much, My 2013 says .48kg of R-134 on a sticker under the hood.
Current: 2013 9C3, Solo axle back, deeper trans pan, 3.27 diff, 12VoltSolutions Remote, Class III hitch, MPVI2, Android Auto capable radio
Future: Cam/lifters/springs/retainers oil pump, Headers/full 'zaust, high flow cats ('cause I care about emissions... test).
Wish List: change stroke from 3.622 to 4.0 for a 402 (6.6)

We emptied it when I did the cam swap and i've had a torque strap on.
and since you just reminded me (thanks ) about the motor mounts, I literally just ordered a set of them better ones.
