Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. I thought it was the compressor, but not being a mechanic, I didn't know. I think they should run about 150-two hundred"

2003 Dodge neon sxt had AC compressor replaced ever since had strange noise now power steering. Went out

Two separate belts. Power steering has it's own belt. Either belt broke or pump went bad. Has nothing to do with the AC system. Just bad luck.

Ac belt redirection

I currently own a V6 3.0 L Mercury Sable LS. The AC pulley has stopped working entirely as the ac clutch has ground it into the compressor. I need to know the length of a serpintine belt with no ac. I...

Talk to your automotive supply. My understanding is that a Non-AC belt will run right thru the area where the AC pulley is. You can get a bypass pulley that will allow you to avoid the AC and it's pulley and a specific belt for that setup.

Ac belt broken. Is car safe to drive? How hard is this belt to replace?

as long as the water pump, alternator, are working properly. but if it has just one serpintine belt that drives all things it must be replaced. before running. if only the ac belt, it is ok to drive if it has its own belt that is broken.

On most cars you can. But first take a string and rout it around all the pullys excludeing the compressor pully. To make shure the path is cler. Then mesure the length of the string to order your shorter belt.

My air conditioner compressor is frozen, the alternator belt is running off of the AC pulley. Does any one make a pulley system to replace the compressor unit so I do not have to replace compressor. Car is...

An easier solution and much cheaper would be to buy a shorter belt.

To find out what size belt you need simply run the route with a piece of string excluding going round the AC pulley. Measure the length in MM, then count the groove in the original belt.

Lets say the length of the string works out at say 1202mm and you have 6 grooves in the original belt, that will make the belt part number 6FPK1202

Call the local parts centre and ask for the nearest they have to that number.

The width (6 groove) must remain the same but the length (1202) can alter slightly as you can take up slack on the belt tensioner.

Hope that is worth 4 thumbs up!!

A/c went pop and hot air started pouring out.

Possibly compressor belt broken. Maybe sudden loss of coolant gas. Fix bad part and recharge.

AC died, a belt is broken, now no tachometer or power

It probably ran the alternator too and without it the battery ran down so the engine went dead without any power.

Was driving and the ac went out and power steering

Sounds like a belt has gone.
Have a look at the front of the motor if you can see pulleys with no belt on them that will confirm it... Any auto parts store should be able to supply a replacement given year and model details.
