My compressor in the ea was noisey all the time and it was the bearing for the pulley that was the culprit. Replaced that and haven't had a noise problem with it since. Does it sound like a noisey bearing? Mine was noisey for startup of the car to switch off. As long as the motor ran, i had the noise.
Also, when it screeches, does the compressor stop? It could be that it's starting to seize....
Good luck is all the advice i can give you now!
