problem #1

Jun 092011

Ram 1500 3.7L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 35,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Compressor / serp belt replaced. belt caught on fire when clutch pulley seized.

Now one of the ac assembly hoses rubbed against air filter mount and ruptured.

About 450 parts and labor. There should be some kind of guard or spacer to prevent this. It is like a file slicing bits at a time.
