I have a 2008 Ducato based motorhome with 2.3 engine. Just had a service and they reported as an advisory that the air conditioning belt was "shredded". Not worn right through, but they said it nearly was. I gave them the go ahead to fix it but then they found that there are no belts in the country and they are awaiting delivery from Italy - should be in the country by 1 July and to them by 3 July they say. So I have picked up the motorhome and brought it back home. The trouble is we were planning to be going away for a couple of weeks starting the middle of next week and that looks a bit tight. So I have a couple of questions for the experts on this forum please, because I know you will give me a more sensible answer than the garage! Firstly am I right in thinking that this belt only turns when I turn the air con on? So if I left it off there should be no problem? Secondly, if it does break does it effect anything else, or does it just mean I won't have any air con? I am thinking I may well get it fixed once I get back.
