The AC belt connects the engine’s crankshaft to the air conditioner and without the AC belt, the air conditioner will not work. In some vehicles, the defrost function may be limited or even non-functioning if the AC belt is broken.
If you hear squealing when the air conditioner is turned on, or notice that the AC belt appears to be frayed, stretched, or worn, one of our expert mechanics can inspect the belt and replace it for you if necessary. An inspection will help eliminate causes of AC belt failure other than normal wear and tear. Occasionally, a different broken part can interfere with the belt, causing failure.
If the AC belt is broken, you’ll need to have it replaced if you want to have a working air conditioner. During the winter, the air conditioning unit helps to dehumidify the car during the defrost cycle, so repair may be essential during the winter months.
The vehicle’s air conditioner will not run without a properly functioning AC belt. While this isn’t a major issue, it can be rather uncomfortable in warmer climates. The issue becomes more important in the winter, if weather necessitates use of the defrost setting on the heater.
