You need to go back and tell them in plain terms the compressor is not fit for purpose and you want it replacing. Period. Don't stand for this fobbing off. Go back and demand they replace it.
Good luck
Well, I've already gone back twice and told him it's wrong and that I've never heard a compressor make a noise like this. All he'll do is check the system and say there's nothing wrong. He refuses to do more.

When I say I'm screwed, I mean because I can't fight this fight right now. I'm involved with some serious family issues (getting my 91 year old dad and 94 year old aunt moved out of their two flat is part of it) and I don't have another day to spend on this.

Looks like the garage wins and I lose...again. FU GM...for dumping Saturn.
