We just replaced the serpentine belt on my 05 Ford Freestyle

Customer Question

we just replaced the serpentine belt on my 05 Ford Freestyle but the belt is grinding/squeaky and now my a/c isn't working either! Any ideas why?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

None of these concerns were there prior to replacing the worn out belt?

Did the old belt break?

Is the tension on the belt correct?

Is the compressor clutch engaging and spinning?
