Isn't the AC a belt driven compressor? If so, the bearing might be going or something like that. Grab where pulley is and give it a shake, if you have some play, then replace it.

see if you can find the porpotioning valve pull it out and see if there is metal in it if there is you probaly looking at replacing the compressor, it could also be the clutch on the front of the compressor
