Hi all,
I have a 1979 280ce and have recently been getting a grinding noise when the air conditioner is turned on. I have also broken 2 air conditioner belts. I am guessing that the compressor is probably seizing. My question is, is it ok to drive without the belt? Could this cause damage elsewhere? Thanks for the help.

You can drive without the belt until you or the car die (whichever comes first) without any adverse consequences.
