My AirCon has started to make a strange noise. A sort of hiss inside the cabin and a louder buzzing from under the bonnet. It stops when I turn the AC off. Could the seal have gone or any other ideas?

 

IS300h, four and a half years old, 40,000 miles. I always have the AC on. I have 6 months left on the extended warranty.

 

 

Thanks

Paul

Just an update.

Hissing stopped (all refrigerant escaped - sorry Greta)

Lexus diagnosed as a leaking compressor and replaced under warranty saving £850. Thanks Lexus Chester.


Thanks
Paul

Has the being "always on" caused premature failure here do you think?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
