Hi, I have a 2002 Suzuki XL-7 Limited 4WD with 124,000 miles. My A/C belt has been changed & adjusted and continues to squeak. Last weekend when I was coming back in town the A/C stopped. I took it into the shop. There is no freon leak. They said they thought it was the compressor, but are not sure. The quote? $1300 for the compressor plus labor. I do realize I can get rebuild compressors on the internet, but I'm not sure this is the solution. The fan continues to kick on. I just tried to run the heat as kd6rhd56 suggested and it blows out warm, not hot air. I tried the A/C again and it started squealing again. Any other ideas?

Re: AC not working & belt squeaking
Dont get a rebuild compressor they never work very well it sounds like the a/c has a restriction the only way to tell is to pull the orfice tube or expansion valve to find out the compressor will push metal into it if the insides of the compressor if failing

Only the 4WD version is 'flat towable' - if yours is the front wheel drive version you will need a dolly as special equipment to prevent damage occuring to the transmission. Towing Auto vehicles is not really advisable in my opinion and unless it is specifically stated in the specification of the manufacturers handbook it is best avoided.
However you may want to check out this link which provides a list of towable pickups and SUVs that is updated each year. You can also find their list of towable vehicles from previous years there as well. These are vehicles that are factory approved by their manufacturers for towing behind a motorhome. Some vehicles such as the XL-7 require special procedures which must be followed, including speed and distance limitations.
For example, the 4WD version of the XL-7 requires special care to be taken every 200 miles in order to avoid the potential of transmission damage.
Sorry for the delayed response.... I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question. I do not know if you still need the answer, but am answering it in case you do.

Metric Wrenches and Sockets is all you will need. A Serpentine Belt Tool usually works easier (more torque) in moving the Tensioner.
Take a bar of soap at touch it on the side of belt when it is running. Becareful!!! or spray some WD40 on it. Should stop it. If not it must be something wrong with whatever it is running. If that is a serpentine belt spray it. Soap is good on v-belts.
1)To adjust P/S belt tension, loosen tension pulley bolts and turn tension pulley using hexagon wrench.
2)Adjust belt tension to specification described in CHECK. Then tighten tension pulley bolts to specified torque.
