Ok,
I can handle my aux fan breaking off the bracket, going crazy under the hood and scaring the living shit out of me....but the same day my A/C compressor started making noise. I haven't full swallowed that the bearings are gone and I'll have to take an expensive trip to the AC shop with parts in tow. I had a quick look at it and cut the belt...at a glance it looked like the front pulley piece of the compressor was loose. Ya, ya I know...probably cause my bearings are screwed....but what are the odds she's just loose? Anyone have a similar experience? How is the compressor pulley wheel put together?
I felt like I cut off one of her fingers when I diced the belt ;(
Sympathy replies?

could be just the clutch but i would wager the bearings are toast from what you describe.
by the way, why would you need a/c in Halifax anyhow?;)

once i was on the ferry, going to work, and this gorgeous girl was in the car next to me. my ac belt starts screeching like mad, (ac was off) it was a gradual thing but anyway, i was so embarrassed by this wailing, that instead of going home and tightening the damned thing i just cut it off. it was a pretty fresh continental too. the worst part of it was that i never spoke a word to this girl. i'm stupid!
