Hi don’t know if anyone could shed some light but I’ve noticed that when I turn on my air con I can hear like a grinding noise. At 1st I thought it was my breaks rubbing but then noticed soon as turned the air con off the noice stoped. I can have the fans on with out a/c and there is no noise but soon as I hit the button the noise starts

As you said the sound stops if fans are on without aircon then as said earlier it's probably the compressor.
Warranty job otherwise pretty expensive I think.

For what it is worth this issue effected a family member's 2017 JA Picanto (but not my 2018 one). Exact same symptoms and noise - basically sounded like a dry bearing whenever the air compressor was operating. Took it to the dealer under warranty, they confirmed the noise and replaced the air compressor component of the system. Although they are obviously different cars they all pretty much use the same system in all Kia and Hyundai vehicles and they all come from the same place and same manufacturer.
