Q: BELTS SQUEELING on 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

I JUST PAID OVER $800.00 TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT ON MY 2004 CRUISER. WHEN I GET MY CAR BACK FROM THE MECHANIC MY AIR CONDITION ISN'T WORKING ANYMORE AND MY BELTS ARE SQUEELING LIKE A STUCK PIG!! WHAT DID HE SCREW UP? SHOULD I REPLACE THESE BELTS? MY CAR HAS 94,000 AND ITS PROBABLY TIME TO CHANGE THEM ANYWAY, BUT HOW DO I KNOW ITS NOT THE TENSIONER OR A PULLEY. LIKE I SAID MY CAR WASN'T DOING ANY OF THIS WHEN I TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC TO FIX THE TIMING BELT.

Maybe the belts aren't tight enough. If they're original they shoud be replaced anyway. Bring it back to the mechanic and see what he says; give him a chance to fix it.
