Tortured Bird Chirping when AC's activated or wheels turned completely.
Possibly I have a bird trying to free himself at certain times but I highly doubt it.
Ive had a squeal/chirping type sound coming from Lord knows where in my engine bay (belt side). Its been going on for the last 4 months or so and has seemed to quiet down over the months but its still quite audible. The chirping is fairly loud when I have the AC compressor activated or the wheels turned all the way too the left or right. The squeal is minimal but still audible when running the car normally without AC and the wheels straight.
I was thinking Alternator pulley, but I was wondering if anyone else had some insight before I order the alt pulley and tool. Is it possible for the AC compressor or power steering pulley's to go bad? Possibly the tensioner pulley ( tensioner is within spec and was just changed 10k ago with my timing belt)? Any insight would be very helpful.
