Help! Squeeking AC Compressor!

Terrible repetitive metal on metal squeeking/chirping coming from AC Compressor on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0, w/115,000 miles. Checked fan belt, ok. Is there a way to lubricate compressor bearings? Does entire unit have to be replaced? Sounds like big $$.

If you're absolutely certain it's the compressor and not another accessory (or tensioner/idler pulley bearing), you'll need to replace the compressor. Costs vary, so yes it may be $$$.
