Austin mechanic
My focus needs new alt and my expedition ac clutch seems to have failed. Anyone know of a good mechanic to visit?

Thanks in advance,

I have put an alternator on a zetec before and can help with that if you need it.

Awesome. How long did it take?

I called Uptown Auto Repair on the Expedition A/C. They seem to think the compressor has failed since the clutch still moves freely until I attempt engage the system then the belt just burns across the compressor pulley. (Stinky smell of a belt burning) Looking into another shop now as well to see how they compare.

Thanks guys I dropped off the focus to ProTech to see if they can diagnose it. One minute alt seems bad next good battery seems good sears platinum sealed battery.

My zetec was doing that before I changed the alternator out. It really wasn't all that bad to do. It is a tight space, just some patience and about an hour and it can be done.
