    I have the above noise sometimes when i first start the car ( within a couple of min's of starting). It soon goes, but is getting worse. if i turn the aircon off, is stop's instantly, and if i turn it on again it does it again breifly.

    Any idea's?

    Aircon tensioner is seperate, and manually adjusted. Sounds like it just needs tightened up?

    As my wife pulled away the mechanic heard the noise, just said pop it back when you get a chance, and i'll have a look for you. so another job for me to get someone else to look at ;o)
