I have tried tirelessly to fix my air con by replacing the pump sensor and condenser but these two things haven't worked. When hooked up to a refill it shows vacuum coming through but when it's on in the car nothing happens. The only way I made it work was by bridging the fuse however after a while the gas just came out by the pump.

Rather than guess , replace parts not required as seems you have done , take it to a car air con specialist for diagnosing and estimating of costs .Usually always plenty of independent specialist in that field locally available .

I wasn't guessing, the condenser had a hole in it where gas could be seen coming out, and I figured the gas was coming out of the pump since the switch wasn't activating properly under pressure. There's a surprising lack of actual repair specialists in my area only people that service/refill.
