Pajero Aircon belt problem

Thanks but the belt is not a serpentine as i can not find the model in the listing by FIXYA.It is a Mitsubishi Sport same as a Challenger with 4D56TD.
The belt is a vee belt A section single on a idler and last about a month or less as it gets losser you can retention then you run out of adjustment or breaks if it is not chcked and wiped out alt belts.It is the correct Genuine belt.HP and LP seems OK condenser is working ok and not dirty.Plenty cold air and cuts in out on the thermostat.
Compressor turns freely when engaged and turned by hand.The only thing i can come to is a failing compressor.The car has only 3000m or 6000Klm and about 4-5 years old.
It looks like it was a LH drive converted to RH for the counrty i live in as it has MPH on the clock with KLM in very fine print and handbrake is quite awakward over the arm rest. I bought new through a Mitsubishi dealer.

    Scrappy thanks i have tried all types of belts and this is why i went to the extent of the genuine belt but it too failed..The alighnment looks correct.It is only a single belt running on idler from crankshaft.There is no wobbling the bearing in idler is fine.

    Hello again about this belt issue ,the belt alignment is all ok. The new belt fitted lasts about 4 weeks then it needs to be tightened and then it will go a further 3 -4 weeks and then run out of tension or worse come off pulleys and take out the alternator belts in the process worse case scenario. i have a feelin the comprssor is working too hard for some reason an have opted to buy a new compressor and drier an replace.Thne car is out of warranty calendar time,but only has about 3-4000 miles on speedo.

    Can anyone else help with this problem of aircon belt going slack and continually having retensioning. Pressures seem OK alignment seems fine but over period 3 months or so the belt will run out of tension or break or worse derail all the other belts. i am just about to buy a new compressor and drier as this is all it can be.GRABING AT STRAWS NOW !!!!

Hey andrew,

I have been pondering over this situation that you have aquired. Now as a rule of thhumb the a with v belts usually last a great deal. So i have to ask the belts that you are using are they the same exact belt as far as are you using the same brand every time? if you are i am concerned that they might be **** belts. On our ranch we use the v belts on grain augers and other things that sit in the elements of weather continuous and some of these belts are as old as i am and still hold strong. I just am confused on how they are stretching so much. Now you said that all of your pulleys are free spinning but have you check them for alignment that will make a huge difference and try to pull out and in on the pulleys to make shure that they dont wobble and check that idler pulley to see if that is bad ( bearing out in it?). i will think about this somemore and if ya havent checked that stuff check it and let me know. I will try to research this a little more see what i can come up with. but I would definately try a different brand of belt. scrappy
