Some weeks ago my '01 ZX3 developed a weird sound when turning the A/C on, like if the compressor or any other accesory were going bad, but I noticed that when the A/C was turned on the belt danced like crazy so I assumed that the belt tensioner was going bad, went to Oreillys Auto Parts, purchased a brand new belt tensioner for $32.00 including tax, replaced the unit, and VOILA the weird noise gone away along with the squealing when turning the wheels with the A/C on. I just wanted to share this experience, changing the belt tensioner is a 2-hour job, don't be afraid if you need to change yours, it's relatively simple, if any of you need directions on how to do it, I'll be glad to help just email me at [email protected] I have learned a lot from this forum so this is my first 1 cent back. Thanks a lot !
