my guess is the noise you heard was the compressor beginning to seize up which led to the belt shredding.

Do you think anything else would need to change besides the belt?


The picture young buck provided. http://www.paladinmicro.com/46LBeltPath.gif

This werid blackish stringy material was wrapped around the number 6 pulley, but that material didnt look like the belt material. I spind' pullies 1,3,4,9 and they moved. I didnt get a chance to spin 7,6,8. And the pulley number 5 didnt move at all, i think it wouldnt move by me just tryin to spin it neways, it seemed like its made out a very solid material, and hard to move.

I'm pretty sure the random material that was wrapped around the pulley was not the belt. It was strings of a veryyy thin rope, it had the oringial rope color(skin color) but 80% was covered in black

Check the number six pulley Its the ac compressor, it should feel like it has little or no drag. If you locked it up you can either prove or disprove it being the cause of your' belts catastrophic failure.

Alright. I put the new belt on. I turned the car on, let it on for 10 minutes, turned ac on for about 20 seconds, everything was fine. The belt was working perfect, no slipping. So i decided to rev the car and wen i take it over 4,000 RPM the battery light comes on. I just got a new alternator and battery last month. I didn't get to drive it yet, and i Haven't drove it since Sunday.

to be honest i'm not sure, it was from some alternator shop. Alright guys basically the car is fixed. My alternator is working perfect so is my battery. No battery light comes up nothing. I see a big difference in my car though. My steering wheel is a lot more stiff, it drives way different then it did before, is this because i got a new and better belt?
