SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: missing a tensioner for the AC drive belt? Just

Yes there is a tensioner. You will need the adjuster and the mount and the long bolt. If you goto a junk yard to get one I suggest you go to a local bearing shop and replace the bearing in the wheel.

Look in the headlight ring for 2 small cut outs 1 on the side 1 on the bottom insert a Phillips head screw driver in the opening to the set screw and tighten or loosen screw to adjust. You might want to park nose in to a wall and turn headlamps on to check as you work.

The belt from motor to ac has no tension pulley,how do you put on the new belt?took the old one off?on a 2005 bmw 645


if there is no tentioner pulley on it, then the adjustment has to be on the ac compressor, you should be able to loosen it up, pull it till your belt is tight, and tighten it back down.. unless the alternator is on the same belt, if so that is where the adjustment is.

Where to find timing tools for '87 alfa spider 2.0


You can do it the old fashioned way. The timing belt has to be off to do this. The top belt gear has a hash mark by the nut holding it in. It has to be top center. Then you have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside there. You will need two people to do the next step. You then, Turn the bottom gear clockwise until you can feel the first head come all the way up. The second person holding the screw driver will know when its all the way up. Then you stop. You then put the Timing belt back on. You cannot move the gears at all when you put the belt back on.
