FWIW, my 91 200 20V a/c compressor howls, actually more like a loud
whine you would hear from a turbo, since I bought the car a couple years
ago. Doesn't seem normal to me either, but it still works so I keep
driving it. How's that for following Bernie's mantra of DFIIAB..:-)

One, the compressor has a loud annoying howl when under load (the
vehicle is in motion, the temp is 80ish or more, and the compressor
kicks in).  The howl lasts until the clutch deactivates the compressor,
or whatever makes the compressor stop working.  I'm telling my local
mechanic, who is not Audi affiliated,  that this is not normal.  He
contends that it is.
