Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. It sounds like the a/c compressor clutch is either failing and not fully releasing or you may have a belt tensioner issue. You need to see if the compressor clutch is trying to move or engage when this noise is occurring. If it is then the compressor is the issue. If it is not then you would need to check the belt tensioner. Let me know if you need more help.
