    Hey guys

    So when my A/C is on it starts to make a ticking noise from the A/C thing under the bonnet (don't know what its valled). Do I have to be concerned about this or is it okay? The sound is getting louder and louder from the first day I heard it.

    Perhaps its a bomb? When it gets really loud run around with your arms in the air screaming!

    Well since you've mentioned that, it makes a ticking noise there to. But that ticking noise is on even if the A/C is off. But the sound I'm talking about is deeper in the engine. It sounds lika a fan is touching something.

    Could be an issue with the AC pump... the clutches do go on these, not heard one click before though
