Fixing ac on my 2009 smart passion
replaced condesor already with good used one.
Trying to replace evap, it is still losing freon, was told 2 years ago it had small leak now leak much larger.

I think the car was built around the AC system, airbox is bigger than anything else in the car

see pics here, about to get sawsall out

OK after some pushing and coaxing, the ac airbox is back in car.
Advice, remove entire dash before attempting this.
Ran Vac pump all night and ac system seems sealed and dry.
Just added a can of freon and looks like its holding pressure.
Going to start to putting car back together.

Since you are into it this far, it might be worthwhile to check out the condition of your radiator fan. I don't think you want to dive in again to replace it if it's running on borrowed time.
