    Squeaking from air con?

    Hi,

    Need a little advice. When I start my 2.8 V6 with the climate control switched on I get a fairly loud squeaking noise from under the bonnet which lasts anything up to about 5 seconds then stops until I restart the car.

    Any ideas what this might be? Its had a recent aux belt change so do not think its that.

    Thanks

    Still could be the Aux belt....may not have been tightened up enough. Or could even be another belt. Air con uses a decent amount of power so this could be putting strain on other belts. Check them all.

    Hopefully not, but it could also be the air pump on way out...

    Aircon Squeek

    Had the same issue for the past 3 years.. it is the electric fan that comes on when you start the aircon first thing.. mine makes a noise for about 20 seconds and then stops... if you put the system into econ mode it goes away cos the fan is stopped in the mode...
    1997/8 A6SE 2.4 30V Dark Green Metalic, had for 5 years now... old lady has only 30k miles..
