Cool AC cooling power going down.

Hi, When the cooling power of an Air Conditioning goes down, is it a sign that it needs to be refilled or is it the compressor on its way out? Thanks

Can be a number of factors, but you chose not to disclosure the car model and year, so our hands are tied.

I see you already found proper section for your model.
I am not familiar with it, but you have to measure the refrigerant pressure to start troubleshooting. Some modern cars can display the pressure on the dashboard panels, some require attaching gauges.
We still don't know your location so can't recommend a shop
