When evaluating the cost of drive belt replacement, you may want to consider:
It’s important to be in tune with your AC belt replacement options and how the type of shop will affect the pricing they offer to you. Dealerships will always be the most expensive option for AC belt replacements. Traditional brick and mortar repair shops will typically provide more affordable brake repair prices than the dealership. However, mobile brake repair services, like NuBrakes, usually provide the best prices because they have significantly less operational overhead… And not to mention, a much more convenient experience… A true win-win.
Still have questions about AC belt replacements? We're here to help.
The AC belt is a simple yet important part of your AC system. It’s a connection between the AC compressor clutch and the engine crankshaft powering the compressor via your vehicle’s engine.
Check these signs to determine if it's time for your AC belt to be replaced:
1. Your AC will make a loud squealing sound when it is on.
2. If you notice cracks in the belt, then it’s a sign for it to be replaced.
3. Once the AC belt snaps and your AC system stops working.
4. Your windshield defroster isn’t working properly though this is a less common sign, it still might indicate that your AC belt has snapped or is slipping since some vehicles have their defroster connected to the AC system.
If your vehicle uses one belt that powers all your car’s components it isn’t recommended to drive your car however if your vehicle has a separate AC belt, the only consequence will be driving without AC so if you’re comfortable with your windows down in warm weather then it won’t be a problem.
If your AC belt isn’t working, your AC system won’t work as well. If you live in a place with a warmer climate, you can drive a car without worrying about your AC by rolling down the windows, however, it will be hot. Relatedly, you'll need a working AC Belt to warm the vehicle in cold climates.
Usually, a car belt lasts between 30,000 to 40,000 miles. But it will also depend on how much you use your car, how frequently you use your AC, and other factors. Make sure to a your professional mechanic if your AC belt needs to be replaced.
Here are some steps to guide you on replacing your AC belt:
1. Find the AC belt, it’s usually found at the front of the engine compartment.
2. Know which type of belt you have.
