    Hello I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland and recently I had my compressor and condenser replaced and every so often there is this loud noise that I cannot even describe that sometimes gets to a pitch where it sounds like feedback from a speaker that's too close to a microphone... But it's not coming from speakers, anyone ever heard anything like that? I have a video recording with the sound on it but don't think I can attach that here is there anywhere I could upload that so people can listen to I it?

    Try posting it to YouTube and then copy and paste the link here. Hopefully we can brainstorm and get a fix lined up for you

    Did this just start after the compressor install?
    How long does the sound last?

    My initial thought was that the belt is not tight enough and when the compressor clutch engages the belt slips for a bit until the compressor is up to speed.

    Welcome @Chipd22 . New or rebuilt compressor as the clutch could be defective? Intermittent squealing noises could be from belts, pulleys, water pumps or even frozen calipers and more.
