Default A/C Compressor 'clunk'

Everytime I engage my A/C, I get a clunking noise. Anyone else get this? Normal or not? Thanks.

Default me too

My car does it too, I presume it is normal. I have had other cars that did this on initial turn on.

This is coming from some non-technical, heard it from someone else talk (my pops, an electrical engineer) says that it's the magnetic clutch engaging... So it's the sounds of the part coming into contact... He said something along those lines to me :-D

Thanks guys. Glad to hear it's normal. I guess scoobies just like to make all sorts of noises. Clicks from the lights, ticking from the valves, whine from the gearbox, etc. Just adds character is what I say
