Default Broken Compressor Belt, 98 Honda Civic EX

My Civic sedan, which I've owned for 10 years, has 197,300 miles as of this
writing.

I discovered that my air compressor belt was broken. I was able to slip
it out, and noticed the breakage point, as well as the extensive fraying.
This explains why my air conditioner isn't working right now.

In addition to the obvious need to get a new belt, is there a chance that
my air compressor itself needs to be serviced or replaced?

===================

Let$ hope not, but if you got ten years from that belt it didn't owe you
anything. Too bad you don't have a USED belt to test with, in case is
actually is the compressor's fault . . Scrap yard for $2 ?

Of course. The reason why the compressor belt broke is that the
compressor might have been too hard to turn, because of bad bearings or
other problems.

Ask about this when your belt is replaced.
