97 dodge intrepid/ air conditioning compressor issues

There is a horrible noise coming from the pulley that turns the belt that drives the air compressor, the belt still turns, but the pulley isn't turning like it should, I think it should turn continuously, but its real
jerky like. HELP

As near as I can figure it's the AC clutch. Being cheap, and my car being 10 years old, I just cut off the AC Belt. No more noise... everything else is ok, just no more AC.

the compressor is dead. you can buy a replacement from junk yards (www.car-part.com) for 30 and put a 50 dollar worth gas to keep using if you care about ac. If you donot care if you have ac, take the belt out otherwise even you dont turn on the ac, when you put the ac system on defrost mode, it will kick in the AC compressor. It means lots of noise.

are you saying that in the winter when I go to defrost the window there is going to be lots of noise?

Sounds like a bad bearing in the compressor clutch. It can be replaced without replacing the compressor
