Default -02 PT Cruiser AC problem


I was planning to go and get my AC refilled as it doesn't blow cold anymore. My repair shop says that there is some mechanical failure in the system as it doesn't blow cold and engine seems to try to stall when even compressor is trying to kick in. It's building much more pressure to the system than it shouldn't
Their diagnosis was that it is either dryer or pressure regulator. Dryer is easy to spot but where is the pressure regulator? Technician said that it should be that aluminum block besides dryer that is attached to firewall by two torx screws? This is what I mean:

You can see it also from here just under the hoses coming from dryer:

My local US parts dealer seems totally oblivious about this part..?
