The A/C compressor has its own belt and tensioner. The alternator, p/s pump, and water pump use the other belt and tensioner. Make sure you check the A/C belt while you're digging around in there. If it is cracked replace it.

My steering stiffens if i put on the air conditioner


By fan belt do you mean the serpentine belt that spins all your accessories? If so check the tension on the belt. The belt tensioner controls this. If the tension is good, then one of your accessories is likely not spinning like it should causing the belt to slow down when the ac is on, causing the power steering pump to not spin like it should. I would take the belt off, spin each component separately and see if anything is stiff.

The fan belt fell off my car and ran hot what do i do and how much does it cost to get repaired


Actually, you can buy a new fan belt for this car pretty cheaply
The guys at Autzone will sell you the fan belt, the spanner you need, and show you how to slacken the two or three nuts to put it on.
By the way, if you drive too far without the belt, the engine will overheat, seize up and have to be replaced!!!

Replacing fan belt?what tools are required?


Instructions

Things You'll Need
3/8-inch drive breaker bar
Metric sockets
Serpentine belt

1 Open the hood and inspect the flat surface on top of the plastic fan shroud for the belt routing diagram. Follow the diagram instructions to route the new belt.

2 Locate the serpentine belt self-adjusting tensioner on the front of the engine block. The tensioner has a pulley on the bottom of the tensioner arm, which the belt travels under. The tensioner can only be rotated from the bolt that secures the pulley to the tensioner arm.

3 Rotate the tensioner in a clockwise motion with a metric socket and the breaker bar to loosen the tension from the belt. Then, pull the belt off the top of the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner pulley and pull the breaker bar off the pulley bolt.

4 Pull the belt out of the accessory pulleys. Then, slide the belt around each fan blade and out of the engine bay. Rotate each fan blade to the top side of the engine to get the belt around each fan blade.

5 Match both the new belt and the old belt together to make sure that the new belt is the correct size. Then, route the new belt around each fan blade and around the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley at the very bottom of the engine.

6 Follow the routing directions from the belt routing diagram to install the new belt around the other accessory pulleys. Once the belt has been routed around all of the pulleys, look over the belt and make sure that it is secure inside all of the pulleys.

7 Crank the 1998 Dodge Caravan and let the motor run for about 15 seconds. This will finish seating the ridges of the new belt into the grooves of each accessory pulley.

8 Shut the motor off and close the hood.

How do i take the pressure off my fan belt on my 1.9tdi 2002 a4. is there a bolt on the tensioner than will release the pressure when turned??


Yes, there is a 19 mm hexagonal cap bolt on the tensioner. See the yellow arrow in the picture below:

Put a 19 mm spanner on the bolt and turn it in counterclockwise direction until the fan belt will be released. Then remove old fan belt and install a new one. See the serpentine belt routing diagram for a 2002 Audi A4 1.9 TDI:

F = Fan pulley

2003 Tahoe (5.3). AC belt/tensioner/compressor (Chatters)


The compressor is bad. I have the same problem. Apparently none of the tahoe's compressors are worth a ****! im having to replace mine too. You have to change the compressor, the accumulator/dryer, orifice tube and flush the lines. If you look on ebay you can buy a complete kit to change it all for about 300 bucks. The dealership tells me that you need to change the fan clutch as well. They told me that the reason for the noises is the fan clutch isnt working properly and it lets the compressor get too hot causeing higher pressures in the compressor due to the heat. They called it liquid slugging I believe. Mine doesnt break the belt but when you give it very much gas it makes a squeal and then a grinding noise like your trying to put a standard transmission in gear with it running without pushing in the clutch. I asked if you could just change the fan clutch and they told me no its too late, you have to change the compressor and dryer/orifice tube.

Fitting a new fan belt


Remove the fan shroud cover and draw the fan belts route, loosen the aircon tensioner bolts x 3 on the left side of the cover and remove the aircon belt.With a 15 mm socket on a power wrench pull the auto tensioner to the rightand remove the belt , with a little skill and patience you can get the old belt off and the new one on over the fan blades without removing the fan.Make sure the belt is on properly to prevent it coming off when starting.
