Mitsubishi Mirage AC hose hard vibration when first turned on Sign In

A few months ago I had the compressor replaced and this has be happening ever since (see video of vibration here: https://youtu.be/CyejzWj8lYk). It only happens if the car sits for a couple of days and then I turn the AC on. At the moment I turn it on this vibration happens. I showed it to the guy at the shop and he says the video does not help. I need to leave it for two days so they can connect instruments and get readings to help them figure out what is going on. He said the hose was not replaced and maybe the pressure from the new compressor is causing the old hose to vibrate.

It could be all kinds of different things.

Could be overcharged, too much oil, bad compressor, belt problem or just the idle dropping down too low when the compressor engages. As he advised you, you need to drop the car off for him to check it out.
