Hey everybody! This is my first post so go easy on me!
I bought a 2008 White Suzuki SX4 in July 2016. Has been running beautifully. I live in Florida and it gets hot here.
Anyways. Having some issues with the air conditioning.
Since I bought the car, the AC has been running great for a year. Now it is the hottest part of the year for Florida(August) and my AC is acting up.
For awhile now, when I start my car, whether my AC is on or off, I will periodically hear a clicking/tapping noise.. Sometimes its very rapid, or it can be slow coming from inside the dash. This is very evident when I start my car after it sat all night. It did not effect my AC until now I believe. The air doesn't maintain cold temperature. It isn't warm but it isn't cold like it was before.
Checked if the Compressor needed R34. It is full, so that isn't the issue. As far as I can tell everything related to the AC under the hood is functioning because I'm still receiving air that is cold to an extent. I think the problem is under the dash.
I have my AC set to 65 degrees, its blowing out at like maybe 75-88
the temperature fluctuates
A buddy of mine who is a decent mechanic said it could be a Blend door, a lever, or actuator that has gone bad. Something in there is causing the tapping and my AC to not function at 100%.
