Welcome to JustAnswer.

The A/C compressor clutch in your year of CR-V is known to fail. It is what engages and disengages the compressor when the A/C is turned on and off. When it fails it can make noise just like you describe. Honda has a warranty extension for this exact problem because it's so common. This is from the actual Honda service bulletin: American Honda is extending the warranty on the A/C compressor clutch to 7 years from the original date of purchase or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. To know for sure the dealer will need to check your VIN to see if you qualify for the warranty repair. For your reference the service bulletin number is: 12-072.
