    I was headed home from work today, and i heard a grinding noise so i pulled over and poped the hood and it sounded like it was coming from the aircon compresor. so i turned off the aircon and the noise stopped.

    Has anyone had this issue and if so how much did ya fork out?

    Sounds like the compressor is cactus if the noise is only there when the A/C is on. I priced one at holden a while back and it was around $900 for a new one. I got on on ebay for $80 second hand and it works perfectly. It will also require removal of the gas and then regassing.Get it checked out by a qualified air con expert because I'm not one and this is only my opinion.
