Air Conditioning problem
2000 Honda Civic Two Wheel Drive Automatic 65,050 miles
I am stuck out of town with a air conditioner pump failing and throwing out a smelly black substance. I need to make it home to my mechanic but am afraid to go a mile in fear of compressor failure that will no doubt throw the belt which would domino into other belts failing rendering the car undriveable. My question is that it appears the compressor is run by a belt that could be cut off and not affect any other important parts, alternator, power steering or water pump which all appear to have their own seperate belts. I can roll down the windows for the day and get home if this is correct. Please advise ASAP if I can cut the air conditioner belt as stated and get myself home, regards, deda.
