Hi all, XC90 noob here.
I got a call from my wife yesterday where she explained a weird noise was coming from her car. Thankfully she stopped and called me as the serpentine belt was caught on something and smoking real good. I towed it home last night and started to investigate.
I marker the alternator and power steering pulleys to check whether they were turning with the belt and they were. The AC compressor was not turning and was making the noise. I removed the belt and checked everything again. The AC compressor now rotates freely? Are the AC compressors on this motor common failures?
