Question Humming noise with AC on.

Pretty much since we drove our car off the lot we've been hearing this noise that only happens when the AC compressor kicks on or off. Like the title says its like a humming noise.

Any ideas what it could be? Air in the system? Bad compressor?

TIA!

Howloud is the hum? Ya know, these things do make some noise. Maybe you're not used to such a quiet motor that you can hear the compressor working?

I think its standerd, because when my AC is on it will make the same nosie. Hope this can help.

It's VERY loud and can be heard inside and outside the car... Also, the length of time it lasts is not consistent either...

BTW: My VR6 was a MUCH quieter engine than this 2.5 is..

kkozma, Sounds like the belt tension or tensioner may be off, or a problem with the compressor and/or clutch. Maybe a visit to the dealer is in order.

Yeah, thats what I figure but I always like to have an idea of what could be wrong before I go... Coming from VW experience any information you can tell those boneheads will help. Being that none of them have ever heard of any problems before..
