Actually it's starting to sound more like the AC compressor bearing.

See if you can put your hand on the compressor while the engine is running. (without touching the belt of course) If it feels like metal on metal 'grinding' then it's probably that. Another way is to disconnect the AC belt since it's separate from other accessories.
