Ohk cool my buddy i work with is a mechanic he told me if i drive it like it is the clutch wheel thing will cause my belt to jump off and overheat but idk id love to keep the ac but im sure the compressors gone out because it was smoking and it smelled like burnt rubber


That is a easy fix. Sounds like you just need to replace the compressor clutch and pulley with bearing. http://www.carid.com/1998-honda-civic-air-conditioning-heating-parts/four-seasons-ac-compressor-clutch-63160774.html


I heard that you can also get an alternator bel for a Civic DX without AC. I was woundering how the belt diagram will look like ?
