When i turn my air conditioning on there is a loud clicking from under the hood. on 2006 Ford Explorer

When i turn it off the sound goes away. Heater & AC work great. what is that clicking noise?

sounds like the compressor clutch kicking in and out which could mean you need to check for leaks and top up freon
