Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input so I can help you better. I read your notes to what is happening and need to know your vehicle's mileage.
Sorry I took so long was away with the Mrs. Any way, check to see if the belt is tight and not cracked or glazed. ALSO YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE THE BELT OFF SO YOU CAN CHECK IF THE BEARING ON THE a/c COMPRESSOR IS SMOOTH AND TURNING FREELY. I will see if I can find a diagram for the belt tension-er.
I'll send you some pics to help you out. Is your engine a 4 or 6 cylinder? To release the tenser you have to turn it counter clock wise.
This should look similar to yours , notice the nut beside the pulley, tht's what you pry on with a socket to release the tension
