Whining Air Con


Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me a clue?

I currently own a 51 plate 1.8 Avensis. I'm finding that during this current warm spell, the air-con (once activated) makes a loud groaning/whining/ghostly type sound when I'm going through the gears (up and down). Seems to coincide with the revs coming from the engine. 6 months ago the same problem arose, the dealer said it may just be the fan requiring a clean. They did this and it appeared to do the trick temporarily. It doesn't seem to be affecting the performace of the air-con. Do I just need a re-charge or air-con service? Or is it something more sinister?

I have a similar problem with my Avensis Verso D4D.

While switching the gear from 1 to 2nd or from 3rd to 2nd something whines and I can´t identify what it is. The Toyota dealer changed a part but it did not help.

The problem occures both in cold and in warm condition of the motor, with and without air condition.
