Hi all,

Just bought a brand new Cayman T and I love it. The power the handling and the of course the sexy lines.

if there was one thing hat seems strange in the car is the level of squeaks and cabin noises at around the 2,000 rpm range when in 2 or 3rd gear. After some adjustments to the back hatch seems better but one noise is not going away.
When the A/C is on and the car is idle then there is a rattling noise that seems to be coming from the compressor. When I switch A/C off then it stops immediately, only to come back when A/C is turned on again.

I took to the dealer and they did some software checks saying that it should be OK, but it’s not. Will go again next week.

Any thoughts?

@mattkidd93 - This sounds remarkably like the issue you had! Am I right?

Does it sound anything like this?

my dash makes a hissing sound. I'm guessing it's from the expansion valve.

Yes!! I’m not alone.

I’ve had no luck getting it resolved. The Dealership has been unable to replicate.... let me know how you get on.

I'm sorry for posting here but I'm wondering if you managed to resolve this issue because I have the same
Hi there - they told me that this noise is normal for the cayman. After it’s been 6 months of ownership I do not hear the noise anymore.
