A couple of days ago I turned it on and I heard a strange whine sound.

I popped the hood today after turning on the AC and an odd sound is coming from the AC compressor.

I just had the alternator sieze a few weeks ago. Now this?
Is this something that will pass or does.it need attention ASAP. I am getting cold air.

Year and mileage of car? More likely the serpentine belt.

The belt does not drive the alternator so are you sure they did the belt or the cuff that drives the alternator?

FWIW, my 2010 XC60's AC compressor lasted until 165,000 miles. I would describe the noise it was making as closer to a grinding sound.

I got a replacement compressor off of an XC70 that only had 32,000 miles from Erie Vo-Vo for $150. My local (independent) Volvo mechanic installed it for $300.
