Default Rattling aircon pump when not in use?

hi I have a 2004 2.2 crd, when the aircon is not being used there is a loud rattling noise coming from the pump, when you turn the aircon on it disappears! does anyone know if the pump needs replacing? also it doesn't blow cold with the aircon on thanks

I'm wondering if what you call the A/C "pump" is the same as we call our compressor? if it is, a rattling noise isn't good. Together with the A/C not blowing cold and you could be looking at a replacement to fix things.

I googled it (aircon) and it indeed is the ac pump. If it rattles when not engaged, it could be just the bearing on the front. It can be replaced. But usually the pump doesn't engage if the ac is not cold.
