Hi there. This issue is typically caused by a loose or worn out AC belt. The same thing happens to serpentine or drive belts and is a good indication that the belt and pulley’s that turn the belt need to be replaced. You should have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a car is making a noise inspection before replacing any parts however, as it’s possible other issues are the source of this problem.
