Q: Belt broke and pulley loose

asked by on

My belt broke and the AC compressor pulley seems to be loose.

Hello. If the A/C compressor pulley is loose, it could cause the belt to brake. A check of all the drive belt pulleys would need to be done in order to ensure that none of the other pulleys have caused the belt to break. This should be done by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who will replace your broken belt and examine the loose pulleys.
