Our car started making a rhythmic clicking noise every 4-5 seconds with a light loss in power (dimming lights) with the heater on. The mechanic replaced the AC Compressor because they said it was bad, and the clicking still happened. Then the pulley seized, broke the belt and tensioner. We are wondering if the ac compressor was even the problem to begin with. What exactly would cause the clicking with slight power loss with heater/defrost usage? That was the only symptom we were having.
