Strange noise from A/C

Post by BearNZ » Thu Nov 07, 2019 3:55 am

Very warm day at the week end , 26 C , set the A/C to max and lowest temp, strange gurgling sound in the car, seemed to come from the air vents under the front seat.

As the Kodiak was booked in for the 2 year service 2 days later I figured the dealer could sort it out. Internet search suggested several causes including condenser drain blocked and sure enough no water under the car .I have found the cause !

The young receptionist at the dealer noted my diagnosis down and said the workshop would sort it out but it could be a big problem if I was correct.

Picked the car up after 4 hours and sure enough they had found the cause.

The air vents pointing up towards the roof microphone had played the sound of the air flow through the voice enhancer speakers !

Air vents direction changed and voice enhancer volume lowered, problem solved.

Moral of the story...the internet isn’t always correct.

Great it was a simple fix! My Kodiaq gurgles slightly from the dashboard after shutdown it sounds like the electric water pump running on, nobody else seems to have heard this so I’ll be mentioning it at 1st service.

Mine sometimes has an annoying rattle from the passenger seat, sometimes I leave the Mrs at home.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

Mind's more like a persistent whine. I keep meaning to ask SWMBO if she can hear it, but I don't like to interrupt.

Mines persistently on the wine.
