Wrong diagram; my a/c is on the other side; 2001 2.7L convertible
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I mean bottom front; hubby says he sees the bolt; so he just loosens it and adjust belt that way then tighten it? End of pulley does not show a nut it's got like a smooth plastic cover
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The bolt is actually next to the idler pulley??
Chrysler Mechanic: SuperDave, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
It should look like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/j835r35iyxo6118/2001sebringbelt2.pdf?dl=0
The bolt goes through the center back of the idler pulley.

THANKS the a/c (compressor)has a free spinning pulley could that have caused belt to break?
Chrysler Mechanic: SuperDave, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
No, that is normal.The pulley spins easy because the a/c clutch is not engaged.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
its not spinning; must be locked up and what caused belt to break. crap
Chrysler Mechanic: SuperDave, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Yes that would cause it to break.It sounds like the a/c compressor locked up.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
