Thanks! My a/c is nice and cold thaks to you guys at FAT. I have a question though. Only when my a/c is on, it squeeks when the fans click on. If the a/c is off, I dont hear anything when the fans kick on. Do you know what that would be?

My car has done it since I bought it. So its nothing new. It started happening when I got my a/c fixed again. Its nothing you guys did, but dont know what it is. I dont think its a belt
