no the a/c belt is easy to change, the bottom bolt on the alt. is really tight thou. Check the p/s belt while you're there, the whole job should take 30 minutes and you'll need to remove the pass. half of the front splash sheild.

This may be due to a loose belt, bad belt tensioner, but it's also likely the A/C compressor has a problem.
