Air Conditioning noise

Sorry if this is discussed somewhere else but I was wondering if anyone else has a problem with a very annoying whining noise that the A/C makes. I took it to the dealership and the guy said the compressor was going out so they replaced it obviously free of charge. Well the new compressor makes the same noise. It is really loud and pronounced in 1st and 2nd gear. Turn off the A/C and there is no noise. Any ideas or help out there? Thanks in advance.

what kind of noise? sometimes mine has a little "gurgle" noise that sounds like it's coming from behind the glove-box.

Mine is exactly the same, especially in the lower gears. As soon as I turn it off, the noise goes away. The air is cooling just fine, but that **** noise drives me crazy!

Pretty much what I've got also, except mine sounds like it is more coming from the center vents. I do have the far passenger vent closed most of the time so that might distort the noise.

I'm going to have the AC looked at soon.

I agree. The thing that pisses me off about it is that I absolutely love everything else about this car. Far exceeds my expectations and this frigging noise is so annoying.

I haven't noticed a noise yet, but that's probably because I always have the stereo cranked lol

I only hear a very minor whine / whistle when my fan knob is by the "I" (first major) setting...the noise goes away if I turn the fan up...mine appears to be fan (interior) related, not compressor (exterior) related...

Mine was doing the same thing. My dealer's service dept. heared it as well. It was the A/C compressor. They called Chevy and they were aware of this problem. It took about 3 weeks to get a new compressor, but now it is fine with the new unit. If you guys are having this same problem, take it in to your service dept. The sound was really bad. Good now!!
