Strange Aircon noises...

Recommended Posts

I will start by saying the car may have done this for ages and I just haven't noticed it as I usually have some kind of background sound like the radio on.

Noticed recently a faint woosh/dump valve kind of noise coming from behind the dash intermittently when I have the A/C on. Kind of ,like something is releasing pressure. Only very quite but now I have heard it once I notice it :lol:

 

Everything is working as it should just wondered if anyone else has come across similar.

Mine does it too.

It almost sounds like the car is breathing.

Maybe it has just taken me about 4 years to notice it then :lol:

My car is 5 1/2 years old and I only noticed it about a year ago......we're on the same schedule, it seems.

My car is 6 years old and started doing this in May.  Sounds like a sort of grinding noise that changes pitch.  Breathing sounds a great description!  When I hear it next time I will fiddle with the aircon switch and see if it changes anything.  Useful thread this!!
