I have a 99 ford mustang gt 5 speed and I had turn the temp. to cool and turned on defroster and had a real bad burning smell I pulled over and it was smoking around the belt what could this be?


I suspect that the clutch bearing on your a/c compressor is failing. This would cause increased resistance to the spinning motion induced by the serpentine belt. The belt then continues to travel around the pulley on the a/c compressor, but the pulley doesn't spin and creates added friction on the belt. After a brief period of time, the belt heats up to the point of smoldering and begins smoking. When you select "defrost" you are engaging the a/c compressor clutch just as if you selected air conditioning. Take your car to an automotive repair professional for replacement of the a/c clutch bearing or, if the clutch is severely degraded, replacement of the a/c compressor. Good luck.

If you have a separate belt driving the ac compressor then leave the belt of. IF it has to go around the ac pulley then disconnect the power lead at the pulley clutch and again no problems as the ac pullet becomes an idler.

Do you mean the AC belt? If so (I suspect it is) then you must have the AC compressor replaced and a new belt, so that is not an easy at home fix for most folks. It would require special tools and a factory manual.

Mitsubishi air compressor seized up and belt broke. what to do


If you need the air conditioning you will probably have to replace the compressor.

If you dont need it you can just disconnect the connector on the compressor and leave it there to support the new belt..

We just replace the radiator, fan, belts, water pump and pulley in my ford f250. It runs fine w/o a/c. When I turn the a/c on it makes alot of noise and smoke comes out of the compressor unit under the...


The smoke is probably coming from the Serpentine belt. Flip the belt and see if it is now starting to be SHINY. The belt is going faster than the Compressor has the ability to turn. More than likely, the Compressor is partially seized and needs to be replaced.

Most likely the alternator or AC compressor seized up and caused the belt to smoke and break.

It sounds like the a/c compressor bearnig has gone bad and seized, but check the other pully bearing like the idler and tension bearing just to eleiminate the other bearing for failure. Good luck and keep me posted. If it is the compressor bearing that went bad, you can remove the a/c compressor and buy a serpintine belt that is smaller for your dodge without the a/c compressor. Make sure you know the routing of the belt without the compressor. Good luck and keep me posted.
