It depends on if the compressor clutch is causing the noise or if the belt is slipping. The spring loaded tensioner could be getting weak and not keeping the belt tight.

Squeals are usually belts or bearings, check your serpentine belt for cracks and damage . There are it'd products like stop squeal you can use on your belt. If its the belt it will work, otherwise check bearings on all pulleys.

Squealing noise when accelerating for 4-8 seconds once level speed reached and again when under pressure, no loss of power or over heating. sounds like air escaping at pressure or metal rubbing together....

Try spraying some "anti-squeal" (in an aerosol from any parts supply shop) onto the serpentine belt. If the noise stops you have identified the source. Also lube the spring-loaded device that tensions the belt.

Squealing fan belt.

New belts tend to stretch after a week or two.Simply retighten the belt now that it has settled in & it will be fine.Was it the alternator belt?That is the most common one to sqeal after replacement.Hope this helps you.

Squealing noise

Check and tighten your drive belts / fan belts. The noise you are most likely hearing is the belt slipping on the alternator pulley. Its worse in the morning because the starter takes more out of the battery when the engine is cold. This in turn leaves the alternator with more load to replenish charge. More load = more resistance on the pulley to turn, hence the belt slips if too loose.
