A/C strange noise
« on: 09 July 2018, 22:27 »
Hi all,

I have recently bought a GTi MK6 Golf and the a/c is making a bit of a sound. Only really notice when I’m stationary what do you think?

Any history of when the AC was last serviced? Its suppose to be done every 2 years but often missed.
When its running does it get very cold when set on low, if not it probably needs a service. Theres lubricant in the lines that help the pump the noise maybe the pump. 
Is the pump very noisy under the bonnet when you switch it on?

Unfortunately no history on when it was done - which perhaps suggests it hasn’t been!
It gets cold really quickly, it surprised me how quickly it gets cold!
When I’m outside the car it doesn’t sound noisy
Might a re-gas and service help?

Best bet would be to ask an AC specialist to check it but I do know mine sounded a bit like it but became abit quieter after the AC service.
