Squeaky AC Clutch

My Compressor Clutch is starting to slip and squeak. The AC works great but squills when you first turn on the car and accelerate. Is there any fix to this problem or am I heading towards a new compressor?

This sounds more like the belt slipping than the clutch. Have you checked the belt tension?

If it is occurring when you start the car it could also be the alternator belt.

I bought a new AC belt and it still squills. When the AC is not on, it does not squill. I have about one belt thickness deflection.

Tighten it a bit, or put some belt dressing on it.
