Air Con Belt? / Extremely loud in idle / stopping
« October 13, 2021, 06:37:47 »
Hi all, great forum this is, glad to have joined up.

I have a bit of an issue, I have religiously serviced our vehicle, and after the last service, it came back with a terrible loud rattle when the air con is switched on.
I've taken a video for clarification: :link: Hyundai_i30_2014_AirConBeltRattle

I have tried getting it back, Hyundai saying need to pay a $99 diagnostic (though I think it was their doing as was not doing prior to the last service). Also - they can't get me in for TWO WEEKS! and said they need the car for 2 days!? All for a little trouble when the air con is on  :blubber:
Any ideas anyone?

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like the aircon clutch is having trouble latching on.

Do you get chilled air in the cab when it's actually on?

I'd be demanding they take it back immediately and fix the issue "it didn't have" when you dropped it off there for servicing :head_knock:

For some reason I was only able to see the video in a really small window and it was a bit hard to see. It looked like the lower part of the belt was wiggling all over the place. Is that correct? I don't know if GDs were manufactured without AC. For FD it is possible to place shorter belt so it will not go over the AC pulley at all.
