If your compressor's making a terrible noise, it's most likely the electronic clutch mechanism that's squeeking like crazy and making that terrible screaching grinding noise.

Is that what that noise is? It just started on my car last weekend. I was wondering what the hell it was because I knew it was related to the AC cause if i turned it off the noise went away. Another thing I noticed was that you can only hear it at speed, if i stop like at a signal, the noise goes away. Whats the average cost of repair for this problem (not DIY, but at a dealer/shop)?

I dont have a picture of it right now but i will have one by Thu if thats ok with u guys... I bought it cheap i bought it for $150.00 and i dont care how much i sell it for. Ebay sucks for that stuff... im not even going to try it...

No idea of cost, but it's eather the belt slipping, or the clutch is worn out and is making a more metalic grinding noise than a rubbery screach noise. The noise can varry depending on RPM because of the varriying torque loads the compressor puts on the belt at different RPM's or the engine drowning out the noise.

I dont know if the clutch is an easy bolt on replacement or not, if it is, it shouldn't be too expensive (I'd replace your belts while you've got them apart), if it's not a bolt on replacement and you got to take the compresser apart, that can probably get pricy.
