Belt squeal after some light offroading
Hello, I have a 99' xj with the 4.0l which i just brought earlier this week. Went to test out the 4wd in some mud/water and ever since i've had a nasty belt squeal. Seems to only do it when the a/c clutch kicks on. I pulled the relay and it stops. Would that harm anything running with the relay out? Would some water have ruined the bearing on the a/c clutch? It also squeals sometimes when i take off from a stop light or on start up even with the relay out, but not nearly as bad. Any ideas/help would be help me out. I know a fair amount about cars, but i'm no mechanic. Thanks!
