Hi! New to this forum although I've had my 2005 450 Passion Smartie for over 3 years now.

The 1st time my A/C went bad, the guys I bought it from did something to the A/C line-like shortening it or something because of bad seal. Not sure exactly. The next time it went bad they added freon, that lasted for about 2 weeks.

Then, I was told I had a bad seal and I needed an entire new line which ended up costing me about $600 since they couldn't just fix the seal, the entire line had to be replaced. That was at the end of last summer. Just turned it on again for the first time this year, and guess what??? Yep, no worky. I was told we could add more freon, but I know it's not going to last. On top of it all, the place that usually services it sold their 450 Smart car equip, so I have no idea where to go. (Wonder if I can dispute the $600 charges?) The new Smart Car dealership won't touch it.

May be important to note that whenever I turn on my A/C with or without freon, it makes a weird very low rattling/gurgling noise. I will check the fuses this weekend. Help! I am in AZ and it is HOT!
