Default A/C Compressor

Recently the a/c compressor has been making this nasty squealing sound. It's not the belt. It only makes the sound when the front plate is not spinning. Even when the a/c is on and the compressor turns off, I get more nasty squealing. I fired it up today and it was much worse that before. Anyone have any ideas? Is my clutch bad or should I replace the bearing? I would prefer to not replace the whole compressor if I don't have to. The a/c system still works great.

Default Re: A/C Compressor

Got it. The bearing in the pulley was bad. Replaced the pulley for $30
