First, Check the brakes. They may be sticking and need to be lubed and broken free. Next, the Brake pads may be worn to the squealers and need replaced. Otherwise, the rotors may need replaced and may be done so for a nominal fee.

The Volvo has a bad problem with the air conditioning ducts becoming dislodged behind the dashboard. It takes a small hand to reach under the dash and reconnect the tubing

Most likely this is due to old/lose belts in your engine. Take the car to a mechanic you trust and have them perform a belt tuneup/replacement.

If it occurs only during braking, your brakes need replaced. If it occurs all the time then you probably have something rubbing underneath the car.

You have to identify if the screech is coming from the brakes. If it is, you need to have your brakes fixed.
