    Need help from people have same experience

    So I’ve did searches on this forums, google and some 8th gen forums and I couldn’t really determine what my car’s noise is all about. I’ll provide some info below.

    Car: 2013 Civic Si
    Mileage : 12000km (around 7500miles)
    Occur: only when AC is turned on.
    The issue: there’s this chirping or whining sound lasts about 2-3 seconds that happens every 20 seconds. It happens in both acceleration and deceleration and will not make noise while idling.
    Location: the noise sounds like it’s coming from driver side engine but I’m not 100% it could be just right in the middle of the engine

    So my guess is either one of these parts is having issue - clutch, drive belts, AC compressor, AC compressor clutch or maybe it’s something else I never think of.

    I know I should get a tech to do the diagnose but I wanna see if anyone here had the same issue before and had the exact remedy for it. Please share with me if you had a similar experience. Thanks!

    If it’s the brake booster wouldn’t it make whining noises even if the AC is off?

    Does the noise coincide with the A/C compressor cycling on?
    If so, you are on the right path in suspecting the accessory (serpentine) belt or the compressor clutch.

    A/C belt perhaps? Or a pulley?

    That’s what I like to believe what’s going on since the noise only occurs when AC is on. The drive belt was never replaced before so I hope that’s the issue since that’s the easiest and cheapest fix.

    Hoping that’s the only problem. I wouldn’t want to it to be clutch related. Just seeing if anyone up here had the same problem before and got it repaired so I know what I should expect.
