i replaced the belt and the tensioner the noise is still there when start up then it will stop when i turn on the ac it starts up again then stops when i come to a stop then pull off it starts again i think its the compressor bearing i could be wrong
Autozone shows a clutch bearing available. No price listed .Be SURE that's the cause of the noise.
