    Have you replaced the idler pulley on the AC belt drive system? Or it could be the compressor starting to poop on you.

    AC Belt

    I had the same problem. The AC has a pulley and a belt of its own. I started with the belt and it ended up being the pully. Its a pain, but it sounds as though you have it narrowed down to the AC.

    Since you'll have the whole belt system taken off, it wouldn't be a bad idea to swap out both tensioners. Save yourself some time down the road.
