If your clutch was frozen the belt would be making a loud squalling noise, the belt would burn up shortly. Start your engine, turn on air conditioning, then open the hood, and do an eyeball inspection of the belt, see if it is moving around the pulleys. If it is you only have a worn belt.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.


Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

Air conditioning system freon


You'll need to have a mechanic check the system to see if it is low on freon, or if you have an electrical problem.

I currently have had my air conditioner die on me. When you turn it on it sounds like its working but nothing comes out. As soon as the air conditioning went my car started squealing when I accelerate.


The a/c compressor clutch might have locked up it should be free spinning when not engaged but could cause a belt to squeal and possiblly break if locked up

1998 nissan frontier, clutch on air con. makes noise when the clutch engages, belt is tight, what is the problem?


You probably have a frozen belt tensioner arm on you serpentine belt that runs to your air conditioner. Check the tensioner arm for free movement , if it is frozen replace the arm.

I turned on the air conditioner and the car lost power and made a really bad noise and smelled like a rubber tire was burning. It has 168 000 miles.


air conditioner compressor is locked up. If noise stops with ac off, it's ok to drive. If it noise stays, DO NOT RUN VECHILE. You'll break your belt, ruin your compressor, and be a pain in the a$$ to clean everything out so the new belt fits and works properly.

Loose air conditioner component may break and


The only air conditioning component I can think of which could cause the serpentine belt to break would be the compressor. If you look under the hood you can see the belt winding around several pulleys of engine parts. The air condition compressor is the part which has two hoses with metal fittings and a wire harness attached to it. When the engine is on the pulley attached to the compressor should be rotating at the same speed as the other pulleys. Keep your hands, clothing and jewelry clear of all moving engine parts. If it is moving at the correct speed it is good, if it is not moving correctly it will cause the belt to slip creating friction until the belt breaks. Once the belt breaks the engine cooling, power steering and battery charging will stop, which will quickly cause the engine to stop working. This could cause engine damage, but it will defiantly strand you with a broken vehicle. If the pulley is working and the air conditioner is working, do not worry about it, but you may want to check the belt with the engine off for cracks or damage. If the belt is slipping and the air condition is not working, the vehicle will need a new compressor, coolant, and possibly a dryer. This could set you back about three hundred dollars. If you do not want to fix the air conditioning and the belt is not slipping run the vehicle as usual if the belt is good. If you do not want to fix the air conditioning and the belt is slipping you may be able to bypass the compressor and use a smaller belt.

My kia spectra was making a loud squeeling noise and it has stopped but now my Air conditioner will not blow cold air ( only blowing warm to room temp. air)...is it my fan belt?


it sounds belt related. i am not sure if this vehicle has a seperate belt for the ac compressor, but if so, it sounds possible that the compressor seized and tore the belt off. have a look
