That noise due to low a/c gass is a new one on me .. you would need to get it regassed as thats what causes noises with a/c systems.

sp1ke seems like you were bang on the money there worship

Most reputable garages can give you a re-gas and check the system for leaks. I have used kwik fit a couple of times, as I like the fixed price option.

Quick -fit , halfords .. anywhere thats cheap basically .. all you are doing is adding gass .. most machines these days do a leak test so if it fails that they wont gass it but advise it needs to be checked for leaks .

i still find it a bit of a strange noise for a low a/c gass fault .. im well used to them but if the noise goes when its turned off then that is the logical conclusion .

I will be interested to know if a regass fixes it though so please update here .. i learn new things everyday and things like this not only teach me but help others in the long run !
