« on: August 05, 2019, 10:13:26 AM »
anyone else gets a louder than normal click from the a/c compressor for the first time it starts up that day (mostly if the car is left for a couple of days or more) and then goes normal click for the rest of the time

cheers guys

Ahhh good to know! Do you also get like a metal fan noise coming from the blowers when the AC is on? Hard to explain exactly the noise, but it's intermittent also, probably during the ac cylc.e

Normal noise coming from the electromagnetic clutch of the scroll compressor.
This is an old-style solution, cheaper than variable displacement compressor of other european cars as Clio, Polo, Fiesta, more comfortable than the on-off compressor of Jazz and other japanese small cars.
