Depending on how many miles you have had your belts for,it may be time to replace them altogether. If you had them replaced recently it may just be a matter of adjusting your air conditioning belt. Your belts have tensioners which can be adjusted. To the best of my knowledge, the spectra you drive should have an adjustment for this belt on the bracket which holds the ac compressor. This is located behind the engine between it and the firewall. Your best bet is to try reaching it from underneath. If you cannot safely lift the car using jack stands and blocking the wheels. You should consider having this done by a professional since the belts should be set to a precise tension level to advoid excessive wear or belt failure. If you attempt to tackle this yourself, just make sure you do not over tighten the belts. You can check them by pushing on them with your finger WHILE THE ENGINE IS OFF!!!! They should have about a quarter inch of give with minnimal pressure applied. Once you are certain they are not too tight you can do a visual inspection with the engine running. The belts should circulate smoothly without looking wobbly and make very little noise or none at all. Good luck with your problem and if this has been going on for a while, just go ahead and spend on the new belts. The squealing sound is an indicator that your belts are slipping on the pulley and friction is wearing them down constantly.

remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

Very loud clanging noises started while driving


Try to remove the belt for the ac and see if you still hear the noise, as it sounds like you may have blown the seal or bearing out of the ac compressor , not sure just a guess.

When I turn on my 2004 infinity g35, it squeaks loud for few seconds, a noise comparable to a loud hiss


There may be debris in your drive belt causing a squeek. With the engine running pour some water on each belt, this will cause the belt at fault to squeek.

Right turn loud groaning


I would say you have bad wheel bearings on the front. More noise turning right means the left is REALLY bad.

Loud sqoeeking noise when turning front wheels


is it a squeeking or a squeeling....

If it is a squeeking noise, take the car to have every thing on the front suspention lubed up, is possible it is dried out.

If it is a squeeling noise, then that means you need a new drive belt.
