2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara Question: Air Conditioner noise from the engine



teenybash, Richmond, CA, July 30, 2014, 08:30

When the airconditioner is switched on there is a 'whir' noise from the engine, when the aircon is switched off it stops - (like one of those kids toys)
Is this something serious that can cause damage and is it easily fixed?

    That is the compressor's clutch and most likely has to be replaced. Good news is you would just need the compressor and not the entire system replaced since it is still intact. Good luck.
