Sorry, I wasn't expecting it to take so long, but now I know I'm very happy to continue waiting for a reply.
I have been reading and think the roaring is in the air con condenser. If you have an Expert with air con experience it would be nice to know if this is correct and how best to resolve the problem.
My garage doesn't seem to know!
Thanks so much for contacting me.
Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,Hard for me to say with me not being there or to hear and see.But if its A/C related this could be the A/C pressure clutch that is cycling on and off and when on compressor making the noise .You will have to open the bonnet and with a torch light up the front of the compressor and when you see the clutch engage and the noise starts than that will be your problem ,bad compressor / clutch.If this is not the case then please get back to me .Rgds Greg
Thanks so much Greg. I'll go and have a look shortly.
With kind regards
Hello Greg and thanks for your patience.
I have looked into the engine space with a very bright torch, but visibility is very limited and I cannot see the clutch or isolate the condenser, which is low down just behind the radiator (I think). A lot of air-draught comes up when the roaring starts. I am too old to get under cars now!
Greg, I think this was a very hard question for you to respond to on the internet and I think you have done very well and been very helpful with the information that I have supplied you with and I'm more than happy to sign you off with a glowing report. I must find an a/c expert garage locally and take it in.
With many thanks and with kind regards
