First of all don't guess and fix what someone guesses!!!
The compressor is not engaged if the AC is not turned on and typically will cycle after running. The engagement clutch is all that turns on the end. I might be bad (bear or such) and can be determined when the serpentine belt is removed.
Most like cause is the Alternator (ADP) pully is gone and now the alternator failed because of it. This has be a known failure point on 2007 where very common. Its not a standard solid pulley. There is a clutch mechanism inside and fails forcing the owner to replace the entire alternator ( a big job). The AC compressor needs moving out of the way to get the alternator out the bottom. There is a thread on that process here in this forum SEARCH!
If you are taking it to a garage especially now have the alternator checked thoroughly. The other pulleys can be easily checked with the belt off. You can get a rebuilt alternator which will come with a new ADP pulley.
A failing ADP on the alternator can make a lot of noise and it eventually causes the alternator bearing to fail as well creating a big mess in the alternator.
