I'd say your AC clutch is stuffed. I did replace one on a XF, also rebuilt the compressor while I had it out. I'm not sure if it can be done on a E series compressor though.

does it do it all the time, make sure its not a pully. also if its been worked on make sure it doesn have to much oil or gas it, as this will cause noise as well

Check the idler pulley, it can give the impression that the compressor is crook.
The compressor bearing could also be the cause.
I'm pretty sure the EF/EL compressors are more or less unserviceable.

My aircon gets loud and vibrates a bit when I turn it right up, not good?
