1994 Mercury Villager Repair Question
I need to confirm, the belt that drives the ac compressor on a can be taken off and doesn't affect anything else.
I am not sure what engine size you have - but according to the 3.0L engine there is just a belt for the AC compressor. The best way to verify is to look at the compressor belt and follow it route. I have also attached the pic of the 3.0L for you.
Thank you, yes it's a 3.0L and that looks like the layout..I think I should be able to just cut the belt off and be done with the noise from the dead ac compressor...?
Yes just verify it isn't driving anything else. I suppose you are not interested in getting the AC fixed then??
No with 200,000 miles, 2 leaky freeze plugs and a few other things I just want to get through another couple of months. It only has a value of about $500 so if the water pump goes it's going to the salvage yard. Thank so much for your help!
Maybe I should loosen the tensioner and see how it goes after just pulling it off to the side instead of cutting it?
Yes - it is probably better that way than to just cut it. Well, sounds like it has been a good vehicle though.
