Hi, I have a 2012 corsa sxi 1.2, I got it in may and I have only used the aircon the last 2 times I鈥檝e drove the car. I鈥檝e noticed that the car makes a whining sound in the lower gears but only when the aircon is on? The sound stops as soon as I turn the aircon off.
does anyone have any idea what it could be? TIA

Sounds as if the air con pump is giving resistance and causing the squeal when it鈥檚 on, given that it鈥檚 not used regularly you won鈥檛 hear the noise so it鈥檚 a new sound to you, think the best thing to do is, leave your air con on all the time unless you have the windows down, then it鈥檒l keep the system running cold and it鈥檒l lubricate everything and calm the squeaking you can hear as there鈥檚 lubricant in the gas they keeps everything running smoothly, it鈥檚 essentially the same as the fridge at home, if that helps

Ugh, the dreaded re gas, make sure it goes to a specialist air con company and it鈥檚 done right.
