    Question A/C problem..?

    So the ac on the car is making a terribly loud sound when the compressor kicks in. It is definitely too loud to be normal. It almost makes the sound of a BOV. So I popped the hood and checked out the pulley. When it begins to turn it makes this sound, it moves very slowly while making the sound. When the pulley gets up to speed the sound goes away. I've used the search function and found multiple threads on what appears to be the same problem. However there does not seem to be a consensus as to what the problem/fix is. I'm going to get a vid this weekend and post it in this thread. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it, what did you do? Thanks for the help guys.

    Alright got a video. Its not the best cause with the lighting its hard to see the pulley. But you can hear when it starts, sounds like a high pitched squeek when it starts, its much louder in person.
