That said, you need to listen to the noise with the clutch engaged and disengaged. What kind of noise is it? Is it squealing, whining, knocking?

If it is squealing with the clutch engaged then it could be a slipping clutch but that usually only happens when the compressor initially kicks in.

If it is a whining or knocking sound and it only happens when the clutch is engaged, then the problem is the compressor.

Again, difficult to know without being there.

Good luck,
It's not squealing, sounds like a hell of noise. - like, clatter, clutter
