Re: The Air Conditioning thread...

Id say the clutch moving is normal...its like a regular clutch in anything else there may be some trivial contact/friction going on, especially if its new and not worn in yet. the A/C system in the T4 i believe has a controller that shuts the compressor off at 2 different temps...a lower one for ON ...
