2001 taures -- i think SE

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Hi my name is***** you just turn your a/c to panel vent it will turn off the compressor. If the pulley bearing is bad then it will not help since belt always turns it even if compressor is off.

Can you give me an idea of -- if it is the pulley-- if I can try and drive it 3 hours to my mechanic?
Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 9 months ago

If you turn off the a/c does the noise go away?

No

Can you identify if the noise is from the a/c or one of the other pulleys? If not then belt would need to be removed to turn each pulley to see what one is causing noise.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
