AC quit blowing cold air. Mechanics found AC belt missing + Abnormal wear on Compressor Clutch. Recommended new AC Compressor (~$1000) & AC Belt (~$35). Couldn't afford new Compressor at time, so opted for new AC Belt for temporary fix but told that it would most likely wear away and break unless new Compressor installed. (Total Amount Spent on Repair: $173.74 *including labor, fees, & taxes)
