I can hear a strange sound from dashboard that lasts two or three seconds when turning AC on (manual AC). It sounds like a small clattering and it happens only when the car was stationary for a day or more. When AC is used for some time and after a shorter period turned on again, the sound isn’t present. However, it works and cools fine.

I would like to hear has anyone had a similar symptoms and what was it all about. I am of opinion not to touch AC if it works fine, but I am very curious about it as I never heard this on other cars.

Many thanks in advance.

I've had that... it seems to have stopped making the noise now though.
The air conditioning works fine. And other friends who have owned alfas have told me about strange noises from the dash that seemingly didn't cause a problem...

My friend's sister said that she heard what sounded similar to a lightbulb shattering from somewhere behind the dash or toward the engine in her 156. She says the car seems fine 2 years on.

It does make you wonder though.
