Worn out belt? Really!!!


Asked by Sep 27, 2016 at 09:21 PM about the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Question type: General

About 7 weeks ago I had put my car in the shop to
get some front-end work done and I had asked the
mechanic if he would find out why when I turned
on the AC it was squealing squeaking awfully bad.
I got a call he said I needed a new compressor so
$800 later I have the same problem again and it's
only been 6 weeks the mechanic at the shop is
blowing me off I'm considering calling the CEO of
the company in the morning the compressor does
not look like it has been touched a very very long
time. How many belts does an 02 PT Cruiser have
and what would cause the squealing squeaking
associated with turning on the air conditioner?
Mind you the air conditioner worked a lot better
before it seems to have to be recharged now.
Other than this weekend I've had a minor water
leak and just replaced my radiator cap.

Call the shop manager or CEO to sort out the issue. You paid to have it fixed.
