Nope on the steth...
Belt looks awesome....
almost sounds like a pulley is lightly scraping something?
and causing a harmonic ring

Thanks for moving it....seeing its not a bonnie...i didn't know quite where you want me posting....

well i pulled the belt so i could free wheel the pulleys....

If you are in front of the car... the bottom most front pulley is the
one making the noise....which i assume is the A/C compressor????
It has harmonic type ring.

what will this do....can i drive her....can it be fixed...how much??

Thanks again!

P.*. Jim..I give you permission to speak again!

I would guess also it'* the AC compressor based on your description. It'* happened to both my Lesabre and the SSEi.

Look for metal filing in the area, either magnetised around the inner clutch assembly or underneath the compressor on the sub frame. I'm not sure you want to know what they cost :(

You could also remove the belt and spin your tensioner and idler pulleys and check for suspect noise.

Cheers,
