2008 CR-V, I have replaced the compressor and dryer receiver, brand new ac relays, condenser fan is running fine, but when the compressor tries to kick in it sounds like the power steering pump is shot. The pump rattles when it's not super hot and sitting in the shade (I live in Phoenix... So, yeah) but when it's been out in the sun for a while the rattle occasionally turns angry and it coincides with the AC compressor not engaging.


Here's the normal rattle with the compressor running:

Here's the ANGRY noise when the compressor trying to engage:

(sorry for not linking the urls, I just joined the forum and it slaps me across the hand when I try to post links or videos)

Does this sound like a possible correlation? I'd love to replace my power steering pump if that's really the fix for the noise, and I would LOVE it if that was the problem with my AC as well.
