AC Condensor Shaking

Hey guys just wondering if I should consider just replacing the AC condensor fan since the condensor is shaking like crazy causing my hood to rattle. Also does this fan come on even when the A/C isn't on? It seems to rattle even if I have my AC off and I start my car. Any info?

there are bushings/grommets at the bottom pegs of the condenser, see if they are still there. if not, get a set. if so, check the condition for any cracks or rips that could cause the condensor to shake.

you can also check the shroud of the fan to see if it is hitting the fins of the fan anywhere.

is the fan itself noisy at all???

I will check for the bushings\grommets tonight. The fan isn't really noisy at all not squeaking or anything, just the typical fan noise.


Does anyone know as to whether or not the AC fan should be on without the AC on? As soon as I start my car I can feel the condensor shaking so much that my steering wheel is vibrating.

Went to get this checked out looks to be more like the compressor more then the condensor. My A/C is still working though. Is my compressor going or is the belt maybe too tight\loose?
