I recently picked up an '05 with 35K on it. While I checked the AC during the test drive and it blows cold, I just recently noticed a horrible grinding sort of noise and I'm wondering if it could actually be normal because of the mostly open engine bay and no sound deadening. It's not audible when you're actually rolling, but sounds pretty bad when you're idling in the garage or next to a wall or another car.

My 2005 Elise has aircon, it woks fine but the compressor makes a whining noise that you can hear when driving past buildings etc with the windows open.
A year later and it's still working....and still makes the whining noise.

I assumed it was due to the lack of sound insulation on the Elise.
