I started the car today after it was sat for about an hour after a 12 mile journey. Once started and before I started moving I turned on the air conditioning and the car juddered then continued, it didn't stall. I did this another 3 times turning it on and off, then it stopped doing it. Any idea what it might be?

Not sure of the root cause but it isn't uncommon on the Mk3 and was the same on the Mk2.

I've always felt that Ford did a particularly poor job of integrating A/C into these cars.

Have you got an upgraded or possibly worn rear engine/transmission mount as from looking at several posts this can be a culprit of vibrations with the A/C one? However as Alb says a lot of people complain that the A/C makes a lot of vibration in these cars.
