A/C BELT REPLACEMENT

2004 Kia Sorento

Air Conditioning problem
2004 Kia Sorento 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 94,900 miles

I had several belts replaced during the Winter including the A/C Belt. I had to take it back 2 days later because when I turned on System for heat, I heard squealing and smelled wires or rubber burning.

2 weeks ago, vehicle was taken back because A/C is blowing hot air. I never noticed if the A/C was working when I took it back previously because it was during the Winter and whatever they did got rid of the squealing noise and smell.

Recommendation was that I replace entire A/C System or Compressor Drive Clutch and Coil.

Could a problem with the belt replacement cause damage to the compressor drive clutch or coil?
