i'm pretty sure the squeaky sound is the belt. bad bearings will have a metallic grinding sound or a shrill metallic sound. not sure about the wobble. if necessary, the pulley and clutch can be removed without evacuating the hvac system. start at the simplest thing first (belt) and work your way up.

however i don't think the bearings are available as a replacement part. somebody correct me if this is wrong.
