every once in a while, seemingly randomly, i get this rattling coming from one of my pulleys, i think its my A/C one. its a little like metal rubbing on metal but its not always happening, only every once in a while. Any ideas what it is? thanx

uhmmm, well without hearing it, no one hear could help you out. bring it to a mechanic or someone that knows cars.

The clutch on your ac compressor may be making the noise. Does it only happen with the ac on?

i dont use my a/c and the noise still happens. as i said it only happens every once in a great while and eventually for no apparent reason, stops. it just sounds like metal sliding on metal. thanx
