I've noticed that my aircon emits a sort of bubbling noise which goes away when I switch it off. Is it a normal thing for this car or something that should be addressed with the dealer?

Mine makes a noise sometimes but it goes after a few seconds.
Leaving it for a while, it might go away or it might get worse then it's off to the dealer.

It bubbles all the time while the AC is on. I've not heard this in any of the cars I had before but am assuming it might be similar to the gearbox situation (i.e. poor soundproofing).

I think I am becoming paranoid listening out for all the noises people seem to hear. So far I have not heard any in the last year. Perhaps it's because I have the radio on in the background or am too busy concentrating on my driving. Ž¶Ž¶š˜š˜Edited by: Beevee

Sorry to necro an old thread but I had my air con on for the first time this afternoon and, after an hour or so, it started to make a noise. Definitely the air con because it stops if I switch it off (and leave the fan on). Now it does it after a few seconds when I switch it on.

Not sure I'd call it a bubbling noise - more high-pitched as if the fan bearing was squeaking a bit. It did it more when I came to a halt and was idling, but that might just be that it's easier to hear when the engine's quiet.

I must admit cars do make noises and they are not always faulty because of this and the cheaper the car the more chance of rattles etc.
I think you have to decide if it is a noise or a fault and then try to get the dealer to agree with you if you think it needs fixing.Edited by: Derkie54

I don't think it's a fault - probably just a new part 'running in'. It might clear up as it gets some use or, if it gets worse, I'll mention it to the dealer.
