This is an odd one...bear with me...

When at speed, on the motorway, around every 35 secs (have timed, just mentally, so may be +/-5 secs...) - I am vaguely conscious of what I can only describe as what sounds like a short (3 sec?) quiet 'snoring' sound, such as that which would be made by a slumbering elderly Uncle, in the garden on a Hot Summers Afternoon. :eek:

Imagine the sound of someone breathing in through their nose - then suddenly stopping.

It appears to originate from the nearside / centre of the car, and comes on softly, getting only slightly louder, before it sharply ends/ceases...

Am I imagining it? It's very subtle...about the only thing I can think of is some manner of compressor or valve, somewhere?

Appreciate any insight - TIA! :)

What you're describing sounds like hissing from the A/C compressor, which is normal and has been documented to some extent on this forum.

To make sure, try turning the A/C off with the fans still on and see if the noise persists.

Great - thanks - will check that. Was really just intrigued, more than anything...
