If it's loose it can slip when the a/c comes on and screech.
If it's not loose but screeches when the a/c is on then the a/c clutch or compressor is locking up.
If it screeches any time the car is running it can be any of the pulleys. Take the belt off and see if any are hard to spin. Be sure to check the idler pulley also.

I would guess the alternator was not mounted correctly or there is too much tension on the belt.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

In severe cold weather my 04 coupe "screams" a


When you hear this scream, it is caused by the altenator working. The belt is loose. If you have a serpentine belt then the belt tensioner is weak. If the altenator has it's own belt , then there is an adjustment bolt or pulley to tighten the belt.
