This is a R-134a system and right around 1 .75 lbs should be planty for that system without going over and provide a nice icey cold vent. Let me know if you need anything else.

My 2002 Kia Rio with manual locks also wouldn't unlock. the connecting rods would bend enough that I could pull the inside plunger up or turn the key, but in either case it would snap back when I let go, and the door remained locked.
The problem is a broken spring at the latch mechanism. Getting it unlocked is a matter of wiggling and banging the handles and lock until the lever the spring is supposed to control moves. The lever is in line with the car, so gravity might help if you park facing uphill or downhill. I wish I'd inspected the latch carefully enough to tell which.
Once the door is open, remove the interior door panel. The hard part is the window crank: push the heavy wire clip off the crank's shaft between the crank and the panel. Save the plastic sheet inside the panel; it protects the mechanisms from collecting moisture in your interior and rusting. A few screws and a snap or two will allow you to lift the panel up off the inside lip of the window.
The latch is held in by the 3 big screws in the door's edge, but you also need to disconnect some connecting rods that go to the various latch and lock handles. The plastic clips that hold the rods into their levers can be rotated to unsnap from the rod, the the rod can be pulled easily our of the clip. You'll see when you try it.
On mine, I found a broken spring that had connected two hooks right across the top of the latch mechanism. I came online to find a replacement spring or mechanism and ended up here, but my rubber band I cut from a bicycle inner tube is working fine for now.
Go ahead. Say something about fixing a broken Kia with a rubber band.

Remove negative battery terminal, release tank pressure by opening gas cap, remove the rear seat, you will see a cover, remove the cover, you will now see the top of the gas tank and also the pump, the pump is located inside the tank and can be removed from the top, next remove the connector from pump, remove the lines, note : cover lines with a rag as you remove there may be a little pressure, this will help gas from spray all over, with connector removed and lines removed you will now remove the six bolts holding the pump in, lift and remove the pump, take note of the position, make a ref mark so you can reinstall pump in top of tank facing the right way. this is called a fuel pump module, here is a picture of the pump unit.
