My air con pump is breaking away from the engine due to a vibration I think, and with a one belt system is driving me up the wall. Can the pumps jam momentarily or could the belt damper have worn and causing vibration and then bolt failure. Other driven pulleys all seem in order. Help

Often a crap belt can cause all kinds of vibration.
Or possibly the Damper Shock is out of oil? I'd bet on the belt first as even crappy New ones can vibrate heavily.. Just watch it in action to check.

Just joined this site the other day.
I can't believe I saw this post.
On Friday I was headed back to the office and the suddenly
the battery light is on and no power steering. I was a just
a couple of hundred feet from the parking lot. I pulled in and
opened the hood expecting the belt to have broken, but
what I found was the air con pump was hanging.
The bolts had sheered off.
