Air Conditioner Vibration

I’ve noticed lately that I have a vibration from what seems like the air conditioner.

The vibration is really only felt when parked with the A/C on.

It is best described as the same feeling/sound you get when a large truck passes you and causes a sound/vibration in your car.

I believe I can hear a fan/pump running (not the one in the car pushing the air) under the car. When the fan/pump starts or stops, that’s when the vibration/sound occurs.

I don’t recall this before, but I haven’t used the A/C much until now.

Anyone come across this. ?

My 2020 Model 3 just started doing this too!
Vibration when I get in the car and the air conditioner turns on.

I have had the car about three months and 3,500 miles... all in hot Florida.
It just started doing this now.

Is this “normal” or a problem that needs to be fixed?
