That is the compressor kicking on. Very distinct sound. But nothing wrong as far as I can tell, that's just how it sounds.

But it is normal a new kick 30 secondes after the last one? The periodicity between the kicks is around 30 secondes?

That is a bit fast of a cycle. But it's not going to run a long time...even on a hot day my Corolla the compressor will run for about a minute or so, then off for a minute (not figuratively, I mean a true 60 seconds) and if running the defroster on a cold day it will run maybe 30 seconds then off for a minute. A little quick on yours, but not a lot

So I guess it is not a major problem... or a problem at all. I'll not do nothing for now. Thank you for the hepl.
