X1 23D Aircon Noise

Hi all
Am brand new to this site. Now that the hot Aussie sun is beaming down on us I notice when the Aircon is on in my X1 there is a lot more noise in the cabin.It just sounds like a big cooling fan in the engine bay droaning into the cabin.

The best way to tell is when idling at the lights just turn the aircon button on/off. Also noticeable on acceleration but fades out cruising at speed.

Many thanks for any comments

Hi Waroona, welcome to the forum I have a 20d and I also had that noise checked at dealer. They said that the noise is normal and it is the A/C compressor's noise inside. As you say it also makes a roaring-like sound under acceleration. Nothing to worry about in my opinion

I've got the same "problem". It is really noticiable when ther car is stopped in front of a traffic light but here the start/stop is your friend turning off the motor..
