    Anyone else hear a slight gurgling sound coming from somewhere toward the front/bottom section of the car while off? ..spending too many evenings sitting in the cabin, familiarizing myself with features, options, and upgrades (w/ big grin on face :biggrin:). Wondering if this is a liquid cooling mechanism perhaps, something else normal, or something to be concerned about.

    Could it also be the air compressors?

    Did you ever work out what this noise is? I heard it recently with the car’s climate control kept on. Outside 15C, inside temp set to 18C?

    Yes, I have heard that. I assume it is refrigerant moving about the loops to equalize pressure when the compressor is turned off. At least that is what it sounds like. Go sit next to your heat pump for a cycle or 2.

    I came here thinking we were getting a new easter egg. :D

    BTW my car sometimes makes gaseous noises too after the fan has turned off. I suspect either the AC or BMS coolant is just doing it's resting phase stuff.
