V Belt

(1999 Plymouth Voyager)
I replaced a V belt for AC. Turned on the car and a loud noise began as well as the smell of burning rubber. What is the problem?

You may have mis-routed the belt or maybe the other belt wore out or failed because the A/C Compressor froze up, which can happen. Turn on your car with the A/C and defroster off and see if the belt turns ok, then switch on the A/C and see if the A/C Compressor turns correctly. That is what I do in the shop when I have this type of problem.
