My BMW 318 air con fanbelt has broken is this an urgent problem or can I take time in replacing it.


Are you sure that the belt only turns the AC compressor? Be sure that it's not also connected to the fan and the power steering pump. If it's only turning the air conditioning compressor then you can live with it for as long as you can live without air conditioning.

Power steering hard


Check for low power steering fluid, a broken belt (there is a belt that connects the engine's main drive pulley to the power steering, alternator, air conditioning, etc. pulleys) or your power steering pump went bad and will need to be replaced.

Is there a power steering belt that could have broke if everything was working fine and just all of a sudden had no power steering?


well you could open the hood and look. a broken belt usually makes quite a flopping racket when it goes. today's cars usually have a serpentine belt which runs the power steering, the alternator, and the air conditioning pump so when the belt breaks you hear the noise, the steering gets hard, and the alternator light comes on. a few cars however have separate belts. open the hood and take a look. will look like a black belt laying in there.

Car will not steer, belt broken but my husband thinks that the air conditioning pump needs to be replaced


He may be right. If the alternator pulley bearing has failed, or one of the belt idler pulleys has failed, the belt can come off or break and since the belt also drives the power steering pump you will also lose your power steering assist. With the engine off, check all the pulleys to make sure they turn freely by hand before installing a new belt and you'll probably find the problem. [the large crankshaft pulley won't turn by hand however] Take a good look at the belt tensioner also to make sure it isn't worn enough to tilt the tensioner pulley off to the side as this can also cause the belt to come off. Hope this helps!

I have a broken belt that goes on the same pulley that another belt is already on. What all do I have to remove to be able to put the belt on. I guess the belt that needs put on is for the heat & air...


A/C Compressor Belt
  1. Remove the alternator/power steering and water pump drive belt to gain access to the air conditioning belt.

  2. Loosen the tensioner pulley locknut, then turn the adjusting screw to raise or lower the tensioner pulley assembly. Remove the belt.

To install:

  1. Install the belt.

  2. To adjust the belt, loosen the tensioner pulley nut and adjust the belt tension by tightening the adjusting screw. Tighten the pulley nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) after adjustment.

  3. Install the alternator/power steering and water pump drive belt and adjust.

  4. Start the engine and check for proper belt alignment and any abnormal noise.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle - the battery light came on this morning will driving to work (5 minute drive) and by the the time I got to work, the power steering wasn't working. Any ideas?


Sounds like the serpintine belt that turns your power steering pump has broken or came off of the pulley.

You should see the problem when you open the hood.

Power steering stops when I turn on the air conditioning


YES. or the belt may be slipping. does the a/c work? if the belt is tight and the a/c does not work, then the a/c compressor is trying to sieze and will need replacement. if you dont need the a/c disconnect the wires to it.
