Get an assistant, open the hood and have them stand by the corner where the air conditioner compressor is located. It is a barrel shaped round contraption driven through a clutch by the serpentine belt. Now turn the air conditioner on and off while they listen. If the squealing arises from that area then you most likely have a problem with the compressor or clutch going bad. If not, then I would suspect the serpentine belt tensioner. If you have a lick of common sense, you can actually take a very large and long screwdriver, put the pointy end on various engine components with the handle end held to an ear and you can the noise coming directly from the problem part. On the other hand you are sticking a dangerous projectile of death into whirring spinning machinery and all kinds of bad things can happen without the greatest amount of care on your part..

My Echo makes a squealing noise randomly when driving & airconditioner is turned off?

Your serpentine belts tension is loose or the belt is going hard. Check the tension on the tensioner pulley and condition of belt.
The belt is slipping on your accessory pulleys when a load is placed on them such as power steering, alternator and clutch fan.

MINI cooper s air conditioner fan makes a noisy whine. when I make a sharp left turn it stops but eventually the noise returns. It is a fan in the airconditioner. How do i access it so I can fix it?

Sounds like an alignment issue. Loosne the motor mounting fasteners, and try to move the motor to another position...if not, pull the motor and investigate..
