I joined over a year ago when i bought my 08 2.2 EX, it's been a dream and this is the first issue it's had. yesterday morning i started the engine and heard a horrible scratchy sound upon start-up. it dies down after a minute. the car runs perfect, still.
i've had it diagnosed as a broken AC pulley, the one at the bottom of the engine.
my question is this, when i replace the ac compressor, is it wise to also replace the serpentine / fan belt too. my belt seems fine but my mechanic advised to do it anyway. #accord #ac #pulley
