I had a aftermarket A/C system installed in the Jeep early this spring in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It has been returned 3 times to try to get the drive belt system corrected. I really think the shop is trying, but, they are not making any progress. The belt will only last about a week or Two, depending of course on how much it is driven. If you check out the obvious, it is in alignment with all pulleys. I feel that the problem is primarily that the belt is too wide. The Seltec Compressor has a pulley that accepts a wide belt. However, the Jeep engine Harmonic Balancer pulley is original and is a lot narrower.The company installing this insists on using a wide belt. It only seats into the drive pulley about half way. It is impossible to tighten the belt enough to stop slippage under hard acceleration. It squeals a lot. Could anyone tell me where to go and how to go about matching the pulleys. Can the compressor pulley be changed, or can I expect the pulley to accept a narrower belt and not botton out. The unit is still under warranty, therefore I havn't been able to do any work myself. I think this is close to the point where the installer is going to quit working on it. If you could help with any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
Is this a kit we supplied? Post up some images so we can see what you're dealing with. We have shipped and installed hundreds of Wrangler kits and never have belt issues.
Thanks for the reply. I should be back to the unit sometime tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon. I will take some pictures but I won't be back to my PC for several days. I will try to post within a few more days. Thanks again.
So it is not a kit we supplied?
I have no way of knowinig at this time. The company in Tulsa is known as Air Quip. They supplied the kit but I don't know who they are ordering from. I will try to find out.
