Sounds like a problem with the Aircon Pump clutch. My advice would be to take the car to an aircon specialist if such a thing exists in your area.

thanks for prompt reply, you would think a main dealer could sort? so why is it that when working clutch is quiet but not quiet when not on?

When it's working, the clutch is engaged and it's all going round together, as one piece so no noise. When it's disengaged something may be loose and able to catch and make a noise. This is only a guess, from a long way off at that, it's just that I can't think of anything else it can be given what you've said.

Just had another thought. You don't say what engine it is, but if it's one of the Citroen derived diesels (1.6 and 2.0) it may be a problem with the crank pulley. I recall people having problems with that when I had Citroens. (3 Xantias, 1 Xsara Picasso 2.0 HDi. Son 1 ZX 1.4i and a Xsara 2.0 HDi ). The pulley is apparently bonded together with rubber to smooth out the drive or something. They become noisy when the rubber is starting to fail.
