A/C leak help

I have a 2000 wrangler that has a leak somewhere in the cooling system. I've recharged it with the uv coolant and I can't find anything. I haven't taken anything apart though. Is there an easy way to check the inside of the car? Or is there a website where I can get instructions on how to take it apart? I have really checked the thing that sits in front of the radiator that well, like I said I haven't taken anything apart.

When I do charge it, it stays cool for 3-4 weeks. I've tried the coolant that's supposed to seal up the small holes and it hasn't helped. Is there any part of the cooling system that gets holes more often than the rest?

Any help would be great.

When you say cooling system I assume you mean the AC system.

Look on Ebay - you can get a leak detector for $20. That's less than it's costing you to keep recharging it.

Avoid the stop leaks - they'll plug up what you don't want plugged.

It's no wonder the country is falling apart - stupidity abounds!

I'd be interested in what you find out. My AC has a slow leak and I've been told it's not under the hood but rather inside the vehicle and the garage did not want to go any further. I have no faith in the radiator/AC places around here.
