04 Chevy express van converted into a short school bus. They didn’t say anything about the AC not working, just came in for an inspection and asked us to look into “a fan kind of noise. Customer thinks it might be the engine fan”. The compressor clutch decided that it wanted to grenade. Ac belt is wedged in there so it’s staying stationary on the crank pulley. Smells great.
