Question about Cars & Trucks
My Etios went 30,000 km in 15 months. 1). I have had a doubt of the left part of the body / chassis being at a lower height than the Right. 2). The A/C Compressor makes a huge noise when started. Is it common for all such cars or should I consult a Mechanic ?
Yes you should.. could have broken suspension parts and a broken compressor..

From what I have found it is usually the alternator in those cars. If the car is not giving the low-voltage warning light (looks like a red battery), then it is the "decoupler pulley" on the alternator itself. It is about a third to half the cost of an alternator, and you still need to take out the alternator to change it. A good video on taking the alternator out is here:
The tool to take the pulley off is expensive; NAPA sells it for $216. the part number (AC Delco) is 91024. I have seen videos on line though with people removing it with a 17mm hex (allen key) socket instead. the part number for the pulley (Gates) is 37018P. Chrysler doesn't sell it separately! NAPA sells it for about $132. In my case I waited to long to buy the pulley and the alternator wound up biting the dust too.. so I replaced the whole thing. $306 from NAPA; remanufactured with 5 year warranty. Part # NEU 2139731.
