My daughter noticed a belt hanging down under the car it was the AC belt that had slipped off the crank shaft pulley due to "vibration" she was told, recently she had a serpintine belt replaced and am wondering if the person who did it maynot have fixed something properly, This person now says it will cost $150. for him to fix in her driveway. She did say th93 Eagle Vision 6 cyl. does vibrate when driving the car, What all does this involve to cost that much (or isnt that too excessive for a friend?)

The crank pulley is a 2 piece part, the outer pulley "ring" is insulated from the inner pulley by a special sandwiched rubber ring. The outer pulley on may "walk" off the inner pulley due to engine vibration, this is most common on 4 cylinder engines. The crank pulley is the only pulley that can do this.
Youll see a skid plate looking thing on the ac compressor, remove that with a 12mm socket.
Now you have to remove the AC compressor. There are four stud/bolt things holding it on. Also 12mm.
Once the bolts are out the AC compressor is basically held up by the belt and the AC lines. Work the AC belt off of the pulley and then secure the ACcompressor out of the way. Dont let it hang by the AC lines.
Go back up to the top of the engine and remove the engine cover, it just pulls right off.
Youll see the serpentine belt and the tensioner pulley (basically the pulley at the front of the motor and right on top).
Note the routing of the belt for reinstallation.
Put a socket on the tensioner pulley (either 12 or 14mm) and push towards the firewall.
Youll see the belt loosen.
Now slip the belt off of the tensioner pulley.
You can release the tension on the pulley slowly now.
Work the serp belt off of the rest of the pullies.
Installation is basically the reverse of removal, but it can be tricky to route the belt on since its new and rigid. It helps to have a friend push on the tensioner while you route the belt. I managed to do it by myself, but I have long arms. It also took me several tries and much swearing!
Now putting the AC belt back on can be tricky due to the fact that it is a stretch belt, and will be very tight.
I slipped the belt on the crank pulley and then pulled the AC compressor up as high as I could. Then I could slip the belt on. Little note here, because the belt was so tight the compressor wouldnt slip back into position. I used my floor jack on the bottom of the compressor and very slowly pushed on it with the jack.
i purchased the AC delete belt...do i have to remove anything to properly install? or do i just take off old bet and put on short belt and crank tensioner the correct way? it seems that the ac compressor pulley is in the way?
i have checked with a friend in Kenya and if you need to, you can make up an adjusting bracket for the alternator(for belt adjustment)
and remove the ac.NO PROBLEM.as when they go wrong they also take them off, when fitted. hey guys,this is a world market,its not just the good old U.S.A.that has electricity.......mind you,only 2/3rds does.....
If it is a purge noise the highside pressure may be getting to high and relieving pressure.Usually this can occur if there is too much freon or a restriction in the ac system.The defroster utilzes the ac as well which is why you can hear this. From your description it sounds as if the compressor clutch bearing is going bad.
It is the harmonic balancer, ie. pulley. It is a two piece--with rubber between the two. It will, especially if belt dressing or other lubricant has penetrated it, slip. I just ordered a new one online for $70. It is a fairly common problem.
i dont have a diagram but know how it goes on. from the passenger side of the van starting at the crank shaft. it goes from the crank shaft to the ac pump straight up to the power steering pump down to the ideler pully then back up to altinator then down aroun the water pump then over to the tensioner and back down to the crank saft
After you have removed both belts.place the ac belt over the pullys on the crank all the way to the inside so that the belt will go behind the pulley,then place the ac side on the ac compressor pulley.
know place the belt above the tensioner pully and place belt on crank pulley,then raise the tensioner with a wrench to where you can slide belt under the tensioner pulley and release the tensioner against belt,reinstall other belt as you removed it.
depends on which v8 you have....the 4.7 the routing is as follows it goes under the waterpump pully over the alternator down and around the power steering pumpto the crank...it goes under the bottom of the crank to the idler pully.the flat side of the belt goes ver the idler then around the automatic tensioner to the ac compressor.
on the 5.2 and 5.9 it routes starting at the idler pully the flat side goes undr the idler the up to the ac compressor around the compressor and down to the power steering pump ... around power stering pump to waterpump where the flat side is against waterpump pully around water pump down and around crank up it automatic tensioner....around tensioner and up and over alternator
