Strange Clicking Noise Coming From Near Fan Belt?

7 posts in this topic

hello all

so today ive been driving around, its been quite hot... and i noticed my car was doing a rather strange clicking noise every sort of 30-60 seconds. i stopped my car and left the engine running, and popped the bonnet. It sounds like the clicking noise was coming from the fan belt area and car sounded like it was overheating ???

anyway... found out it was because i had my aircon on.... but should my car make some strange clicking noise every time i have my air con on??

hope this makes sense? may take it back to dealer....

Thanks in advance for any help or advice...

It's an electro-magnetic clutch, the click is it engaging.
