loud squeal from ????

so im constantly getting this loud squeal when i start to accelerate and it goes away through the mid range and comes back as soon as i idle down and goes away again at idle.

i replaced alternator idler pulleys belt etc. and no change. at closer look the squeal appears to be coming from the pulley that drives the ac unit. i have no clue when it comes to ac so im reaching out here. my ac is not working either and that is do to a leak somewhere. i had my mechanic run die though it and he pin pointed the leak somewhere but it just cost to much to rebuild the unit at this time. the clutch works and engages fine.

so any suggestions for fixing the squeal? can i replace just the pulley, bearings etc....

also any kits to diy rebuild the ac unit and then just get it processionally charged?

im not really worried about having ac, heck its winter and i live by the beach, but this squeal noise is killing me and its embarrassing. haha!!

thank guys, B!!!!

Spray the belt with the water and then tell us how it is.

A replacement A/C compressor is about $200

Or you can totally bypass it with a bypass pulley from a non a/c truck. They are about $40

Are you 100% sure its the AC pulley? I am just asking since the vacuum pump is right there and they are known to make some weird noises when they go out

The A/C pulley should be replaceable without changing pumps. I think napa will sell it as a new clutch.

You can isolate the noise by taking a long screwdriver and placing one end on the suspected area and place your ear on the other end. If the noise gets louder when you place the end on it your getting close please Di not place the screwdriver on any moving parts
