i dont see anything you are writing

bamaman39 :

I will just give you my answer. With the grinding noise going on thats the clutch and coil going on. They are the main part of compressor. With the vibration issues going on i would say you have a bad going compressor. You can purchase a clutch,coil and pulley to fix the grinding. If you are having cooling issues then i would replace the compressor, orfas tube and dryer/reciever
