Noise when AC is on?????
I have a 98 z28 and can hear a noise that sounds like bearings when my AC is on. The air works great but this noise seems to have gotten worse over the past few months. Anybody have any idea what it could be? Could it be the compressor? Is there anything I can do or just deal with it till something goes out??? Thanks

Check the pressure of the system! does it whine constantly when the a/c is on? My 02 whines constantly when i turn it on. I had it checked at the dealer and the compressor checks out its just loud as hell.

It doesnt whine it sounds like bearings but real loud.

check your a/c idler pulley and the a/c tensioner. I tried these first hoping it would be a cheap fix, it was still the compressor

I will do that. How much was a new compressor and where did you get it??? How much was labor? thanks

No new compressor for me! i have to drive around with embarasement until the dam thing quits(the car only has 30k on it!) I think a new compressor is around 500$

If it is bearings they are probalby inside the compressor wich are to difficult to repair. i think you can buy remanufactured for as cheap as 250$ but i stick with gm parts. I would have an a/c confirm anything before any major money is spent.

Just remove the belt if the noise bothers you that much. Yes, you'll sacrifice air conditioning, but that's why we have windows though. New units are quite expensive, and rebuilding the stocker just ain't worth it. You can always look for a used (albeit good) unit from a car either totaled, or parting out, or simply eliminate it entirely.
