Check if the compressor stucks. turn the front plate of the compressor if you can turn it 360 degrees or more. not the pulley. the pulley is independent of the plate.

AC belt squealing. Lost it on the road. Replaced it and tension pulley. Still squeals.


Sounds like the compressor is seizing up or a idler pulley bearing has failed.

CHEVY C1500 SQUEALING, IDLER PULLEY?


Without hearing the noise I can't tell you for sure but take a spray can of WD40 and with the engine running spray some on the belts if noise goes way that's your problem, if not check the A/C (if you have A/C) the compressor may be binding up causing the belt to squeal due to friction from the tight compressor. To check the compressor remove the belt and turn the A/C pulley by hand (should turn freely) next turn on the key (do not start engine) turn on A/C then turn A/C pulley by hand again. It will be harder to turn but still relativity easy. If it is hard to turn it is beginning to bind.

AC Compressor squeals when ac is running. Do i have to replace entire compressor or can you just change the bearing?


most likely the squeal is actually the compressor clutch u may be able to get an aftermarket clutch but it requires special tools to remove and install and u would still have to remove the compressor for the little bit of price difference i would replace the compressor and the belt

A/c compressor squealing noise


if it does it only on idle tighten the belt if it does it all the time the compressor is locked and will need to be replaced.

Broken a/c compressor


it depends what you want to do. you can take the compressor right out and run a smaller belt.,if it will allow that,or replace it if you want air conditioning.

AC belt squeals under load.


The 1st thing I'd do is to get a spray bottle with water in it and spray the belt driving the compressor while the A/C is running and cycling on and off. If this quiets the squeal, it's probably too little belt tension. Check the belt driving the A/C compressor pump for sufficient tension. Do this by locating the longest part of the belt not touching a pulley. Depress the belt at the midpoint of this open span with moderate thumb pressure. It should not deflect more than about 1/2 inch. If it does deflect more, you'll need to increase the belt tension by putting more pressure on the belt route. Usually, there's some sort of bolt or machine screw on the compressor to do this. Increase the belt tension to the desired deflection. Warning - too much tension will cause premature failure of the compressor bearing!
No improvement to the squealing requires more help than I can provide you with.

AC not working


Check belt for adjustment as loose belts as loose belts can cause a squeal if that is ok then it's possible that the AC compressor is locked up. Remove the belt and turn compressor by hand and see if it spins freely if it doesn't there is your noise. While you are at it spin all pulleys by hand feel for rough turning and listen for noises.
