You mean the compressor turning on?

Well I assume it's hot there at the moment right?

It sounds normal to me.

Every car with a/c I've had does that too. I always thought (like Vormund) it was the a/c's compressor kicking in and out which is easier to notice at rest.

It's normal our commodore and corolla both make different noises when the compressor turns itself on and off.
