I was hoping for some advice.
I reinstalled my blower a few months ago; I had it machined and rebuilt. Anyway; all has been great. The other day I was driving home and I smelled what smelled like burning rubber. I assumed it wasn't me; so I continued on. Anyway; a few days ago I was driving and I put my AC on; and I could smell burning rubber again; and the AC is blowing warm.
I popped my hood and I have rubber dust everywhere and a big score in my serp. belt (the belt is only a few months old); I assume from the tensioner. I guess the question I have is; since the compressor pulley is ribbed side; is it possible that turning on the compressor is engaging the clutch in a locked position causing the belt to drag back over the tensioner and scoring it? Has anyone ever seen anything like that?
I ordered a new compressor; condensor, and I'm going to replace and charge the system. Just was curious if anyone has ever seen anything like this in the past?
