Auto A/C Tip 14

Tip of the Week... COMPRESSOR DRIVE BELT MAINTENANCE... There are several factors that have major effects on compressor drive belt life expectancy and reliability. Belt alignment and proper tension are the two most critical and controllable by the installer and end user. When improperly installed or maintained drive belts can cause significant damage to the compressor and clutch and other components as well as pose a safety issue.

Ounce of Prevention...
Never use compressed "shop" air to leak or pressure test an A/C System. Under certain conditions, pressurized mixtures of R134a and air are combustible. In addition shop air will inject excess moisture into the system.
