There are 2 different system for cooling fan operations on manual transmission vehicle.
For the first system, the radiator and A/C condenser fan runs separately. Turning on the AC fan would only work the condenser fan. If this system is used in your vehicle, then you need to check the AC fan motor and its installation.
Is it confirmed that it is the fan motor that is squealing or is it the compressor belts that is loose?
For the second type, both fans would turn on when the AC is operated. A squealing fan indicates the motor is bad and requires replacement.
