Hi Guys,
Everytime i hop into my Tezza and start it up, i hear a gargling noise coming from behind the dash.. it goes away after a few seconds of the car running, but i'm convinced it must be something to do with the Air Conditioner, does anybody know anything about this sort of noise?? Its driving me mad!!

i think thats normal does it sound like water going through a pipe, if so thats just the water circulating through the aircon system, usually lasts only a few seconds and i don't even notice it anymore

God I taught I was going mad heard the same noise the other night knocked off the engine I was waiting for my brother and heard this cracking/gargling noise kinda behind the heating/radio area. I turned off the heating thinking that it was that..... but I know I am not loosing the last few screws I have left :lol:
