When Andy turns on the air conditioner or defroster, after 20-30 seconds, smoke comes out of the vent and he smells a burning belt. The AC in the car runs on its own belt. Can he just cut the offending belt and live without the AC? Yes he can, though Tom and Ray recommend that he just disconnect the AC which would remove the chance of him accidentally cutting the wrong belt.
