    Default Noisy Air con

    When the air con activates there is a grinding of cogs noise for about 3 seconds which settles but at about 1300 pm there is a faint rattle. Any ideas?

    Mine has done this since new. The coolant/oil levels on mine are perfect. It appears to be rpm related as well. Only does it when A/C is first switched on (for a few seconds) then is ok. I have never been concerned by this, I would be if it was a sudden occurence though.

    Hi I am lazy so my profile still shows my old car. At the moment it is actually a 3.5 year old v6 cdti. It bought it at 9 months old and nothing has been done to the air con since. It is due for a service early next year so will ask then to investigate then.
