Post Air conditioner leak

My 2004 C230 sedan MB has a small leak in a/c. Car has only 16000 miles but without extended warranty I am on my own.
I refilled a/c twice during this summer, on second time added 350g of R134a with leak detector. Next step is to identify the leak, need some advice how to do that. Everything is so packed under the hood that I have difficulties to identify location of a/c parts. Does anyone have DIY instructions, pictures or images how to get access to a/c compressor, condenser, receiver, expansion valve and evaporator? Did I miss any components?
DIY instructions to change the parts is appreciated also.

nothing? i am also wondering about this since my a/c is starting to blow hot air. i have talked to a couple different service departments and all are pointing to the compressor going out ($2400). does anyone know of a DIY or diagram to follow in trying to do a DIY? i've already tried the search button but there isnt much on replacing the compressor, is it because its that bad?
