    Hi all,

    I own a T-Jet which is just two months old. I started noticing a short sound while switching of the a/c while the engine is idling. Its a small, one sec sound, which sounds like "Kriikk". A/C is working perfectly without any issues. Is this something I should be worried about? This sound is audible while in driver's seat only when the engine is idling in very quiet surroundings and when we switch off the running a/c.

    Could be the AC clutch disengaging. Still in doubt you could show it to FASC in your next visit. Does not sound urgent.

    Thanks very much, asimpleson for the quick response. I also felt the same after reading some forums. May be I am bit over concerned since going for a long ride this week :)
