Found the cause of whining noise.
I just had the car looked at today & it was the A/C compressor. Now here's the kicker.
They said it is the clutch & they need to replace the whole compressor. They need to remove & replace all the gas (freon) & then put in a dye to look for leaks.
I asked if they can just replace the clutch & they said they could, but, they would need to remove the compressor to disassemble it to replace the clutch. The same amount of work , if not more. They want $600 CDN for the job if I supply a compressor.
Anyone know if I have any other options?
