    Something wrong with my AC?!

    So when i am using my AC or defrost I can really hear what I think is my AC clutch engaging. So much that it jerks the car a tad. It also sounds like a squeeling belt but not too terribly loud. The AC and defrost work perfect but I am just wondering if these sounds are signs of future problems? I took it to my mechanic and he said that the ac clutch sound was normal with subarus. Any pointers would be great!

    thanks

    If your belts are original, change them with authentic Subaru belts. See if that fixes the problem.

    The A/C clutch is not an easy fix because I've not seen the part available. In any case you don't know if that's the problem, and the belts are cheaper anyway.

    If your ac clutch is bad you have to replace the entire compressor.

    Like said above try to replace the belts with oem only and see if it helps
