    I tend to find mine gets more noisy when the gas gets low.

    yeh, mine was just gassed yesterday and believe it or not kwik fit over-gassed it. when i got it back the compresser was noisy as **** and there was like a "hissing" sound from all the vents, abit like a gas leak. the a/c was running but both a/c pipes in the engine were hot when ones normally frozen and the fan wasnt coming on as it should. we let some of the gas out and got a tin of that do it yourself with the gauge to tell you levels etc and now its fine. this isnt the first time they buggered my a/c.

    ive allways heard a grumble from the compresser though even when full. someone told me its has something to do with the clutch in it.
