No, A/C replacement is complicated, there are legal issues with the release of the R132. There are oiling issued to be addressed, and a receiver / dryer that needs to be changed. Take to a qualified shop for this job.
it is VERY easy to get injured working with A/C systems.

A belt broke on my car and my ac dont work....what do i need or how much would it cost to repair?


im not sure of the year,make or model of this car but if everything else is working like the powersteering and alternator and car doesnt overheat then i would say that the belt may only run the ac compressor. the first thing to check is all pulleys, the belt may have broke due to being worn and old, the belt may have also broke due to a bad pulley or a frozen one. check all pulleys in which the belt runs on. spin each pulley by hand and make sure it spins freely, if all spins free then install a new belt , make sure to check the ac compressor also. good day.

High engine noise while ac is on


This can be due to noise on the belt the idler pulley or the compressor. When the AC is switched on the strain of the compressor can cause this noise. Also if the bearings of the alternator or the water pump is faulty this can cause the noise when the ac belt is loaded.
finally a strain within the engine when the engine is loaded can be due to setting within the engine.

I have a 1995 pontiac Bonneville compressor is locked up and broke the serpentine belt need to fix please help thanks Ron


Most cars have an option to buy a belt for a car with or without Air Conditioning. I would check first if your car offers that option (then if you don't need AC you can just buy the other belt and not have to fix the compressor). If you need AC you will have to buy a new compressor (local junkyard is your cheapest bet). I would have a mechanic install either the new belt (to make sure no other pulleys were bent when the belt snapped) or the compressor (some AC lines can be difficult or dangerous to repair or replace). Good Luck!

1995 cadillac deville tears up the serpentine belt


usally tearing belts is the ac compressor not turning or poorly. your tension could be going bad also alllowing the belt to flex and contact another object. you will need to block your wheels.open the hood. have a freind rev the engine in cycles for you to watch and see if the belt flexes or the ac commperssor is the cause

Need to bypass ac compressor


Hi yotaguy,
You will need to buy a By-Pass pulley, due to the placement of the other pulleys you will not be able to eliminate the ac and still run the correct routing of the belt.
I will research the price of the pulley and post it here.
Please rate this solution, the only compensation I receive for my time is the knowing I have helped and the rating I receive here on Fixya.

How to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8


When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

Belt vibration


This may be a stupid question, but has the tensioner for the belt been properly tightened?  Does it squeal when it vibrates?  The tensioner for the alternator belt is on top of the alternator and is a bolt you tighten or loosen.  The tensioner for the AC belt is underneath and can accessed with the right front splash guard removed and the car placed on ramps.
