A/C compressor / clutch squeals in the morning

Post  catgut on Tue Jan 06, 2009 1:48 pm

Something I recall in a few instances. Happened about 6x since purchased only when cool morning start and A/C switched 'ON' then a loud squeal/screech for a second. I was thinking an A/C clutch that had some surface rust on the pressure plate surfaces since it sat at the dealer for some time before being sold. Belt appears/feels to be in check but need to use a tension gauge to be sure. Gotta bring it in sometime to get checked out.

You guys have this as well?

Been a while since anyone has chimed in here, guess the anomaly is unique to Jesse's car?

Didn't happen this morning after sitting for 4-days....intermittent.

Maybe it's my credit card squealing for mercy when it hears the WRX start-up Suspect scratch

Weekly updates will continue. Anyone else?

^^^^ Yah, that card.

UPDATE:
No squeal lately. It never fails....once you pay mind to the noises and irritate you they mysteriously disappear. I'll keep you all posted if anything changes.
