It could be that the compressor is locked up, try turning the center of the clutch by hand or put a socket on the nut in the hub and see if the compressor will turn, go at least 2 full revolutions if it will turn. If it won't turn then your wallet is going to cry.

your 90% their , the squeal is slipping belt, either too loose for grip ,worn belt grooves, or as said system lacks oil and smooth running compressor. a clog in system will resist also but will usually blow the pressure pop off valve open
