    So my A/C started squealing the other day. But, it only does it when the compressor is NOT engaged... when it engages it quits squealings and works like it should and blows ice cold. Any ideas on fix? Is it just a bearing or something on the clutch? I'm in college so I'd rather not have to buy a whole new compressor if I can get away with a $20 part!!! Thanks guys!

    You should be able to replace just the clutch.

    Pic didn't work.
    You may be able to get the bearing, but the clutch itself is probably easier.
