Bypass air condition belt


If you are trying to bypass the compressor for the air conditioner then you need to ensure two things.

1. That there is some way to tension that belt if the compressor is bypassed.
2. you will need to find a shorter belt that has the same physical profile. Wrap a string around the pulleys that remain and measure the length. A shop should then be able to give you a belt that will fit. Take the old belt with you to ensure it has the right profile.

How to replace an air conditioner compressor and tensioner


The screeching noise is of course the belt traveling faster than the pulley it is around, in other words it's slipping. Hopefully you have a worn belt, it takes quite a bit to pull a compressor. Assuming that the compressor is in working properly and your belt is good, look at the tension pulley. I had a vehicle once that did the same thing and after a lot of "try this" didn't work I got a new tension idler pulley and it fixed it. The old one wasn't putting enough tension on the belt to hold it tight enough to pull everything. Since then I have ran into several that were so weak they wouldn't hold proper tension. Just something that is overlooked a lot of times because he belt seemed tight enough. Just one more thing to try, hope it's not anything with the compressor because as you know they like those compressors and want give them up cheap.

When i turn the air conditioner on it makes this high pitch sound what should i do?


that may be the a/c belt slipping.

have the belt and tensioner checked out, the belt may be good just need tightened if it doesnt have an automatic tensioner.

or the tensioner may be bad, in this case have both the tensioner and belt replaced.

there is the odd chance that the a/c compressor is going bad and locking up.

any good mechanic can quickly tell you the problem in under 10 minutes

When stopped in drive the steering wheel vibrates a lot when the air conditioner is on .There are already new motor mounts replaced could it be the adjustment of the idle screw ?throttle plate cleaning...


The belt tensioner can cause many of these problems, sometimes the serpentine or fan belt is replaced, but the tensioner is not given much thought, a tensioner that is going out, can cause the belt to not have enough tension to keep the battery charged by slipping, when the clutch on the ac compressor cycles on and off, if the tensioner is to loose, or not tight enough can cause the compressor to vibrate, it can cause wear on other parts attached to the belt even cause pre-mature wear on other pulleys. good luck!

What does a BELT DRIVE CLIMATE COMPRESSOR do for a 528i bmw 1997


It has to be referring to the compressor for the air conditioner, but that is a very unusual name for it.
On a '97 318, there will often be a loud chatter when the compressor kicks on that is sometimes misdiagnosed as a failing compressor. In reality, most times it is the tensioner pulley on the belt.

Air conditioner


The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

Air Conditioner Problems


Your bearings in the compressor could be going bad.Try accellerating with your air conditioner on off. If the rattling sound does not occur, replace your compressor.
