: AC compressor belt

03-07-11, 11:40 AM
A couple of weeks ago i noticed my AC wasn't working (hadn't turned it on since last summer). It turns out that the AC compressor belt had came off, simple enough i just put it back on there since it was not damaged. I also checked the pulley and it was straight and properly aligned. Well it worked for a couple of days and then it came off again! :hmm: Any ideas what could be going on, ill probably go buy a new belt and see how that works. I need to fix it before the Houston summer rolls in.

I'm not as knowledgeable as most of the people on this forum, but is there a chance that the old belt (or even if it's a new one!) stretched and you need to adjust the tension?

Make sure the Harmonic balancer isn't working it's way out. My AC belt came off and noticed the balancer was off by 1/2 inch.

What Den said! Thats the first thing to go is the a/c belt when that balancer starts walking off. I had it happen 3 freakin times!!!!
