Recently I've been having a problem of finding one of my AC belts twisted, after a few hundred miles.

It's cheap enough to carry extra belts and re-tension every time I travel. But was also wondering if there was a definitive fix discovered here?

Was this enough to solve the issue?

Compressor itself seems fine, makes good air.

The compressor bracket sucks,basically.
Theres a lot of slack in the pivot on the bracket,the adjustment bolt is a little small,so lots of movement can be found in the bracket,i had a buddy machine me a new pivot and it helped a little.
Its big work to re build the bracket.

Like Randy said big job. When I repaired mine I had to weld up pivot pin and bracket , then make everything round again, working great now, good luck.

Looks like I'm having the same issue with our 2003 LXi. Threw off the belts coming through Bakersfield when it was 112F....things like this only happen when it's really hot out
We have a little over 60K and there appears to be lots of "egging" in the rear bracket mount hole.
Based on what I've read thus far in this thread the general solution seems to be to take it to a machine shop, bore out the hole to make it round again and have a bushing pressed in.
Open for more ideas if you think they'll work... ?
