I'm not familiar with your car however, this sounds like a straight forward resolution. If the AC clutch or compressor has locked up or dragging badly, the extra load could damage the belt. If this is true and you don't want to repair....possibly there is way to use a shorter belt. Many cars are sold in the cold north country without AC units. Try for a belt for those versions and an idler to mount instead. Good luck, Paul

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

Ac not working right


Your A/C clutch is at fault and it is wearing your belt to get broken! Open the hood, have someone start your engine with out starting your A/C. Check your serpentine belt pulley and tensioner for wear. Then have someone turn A/C on high and watch the cluch engage or disengage. If clutch engages but do not turn you need to get it replaced or repaired.

My son has a serpentine belt broken that was installed 2 weeks ago.


Sounds like a defective belt, an improper install, or a bad pulley which is causing wear. Was this belt installed because the last one broke or because it was time to change it?

Put a new belt on it and spray the condenser coil in front of the radiator with a hose when it gets up to temp or the sound starts and see if it stops. Thats what I did today. Flapping/clacking stops for about 10 minutes until thing get hot again.A/C blowing cold air the entire time.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
