Unhappy No A/c and rear end clanking

Hi everyone,

I recently had the timing belt changed on my 01' cruiser(2 months ago). Everything was going great, then all of a sudden I went to turn on my A/C one day and all I got was warm air. Is this related to the belt change?

Also, I've just started to hear a clanking sound coming from the rear of my car. I only hear it when I'm driving on somewhat bumpy roads. does anyone have any idea what this could be? The slightest bump causes a clanking sound.

the A/C is most likely just a loss of freon did they remove the lines when they did the timing belt???? mayby the O rings have gotten hard and the freon leaked out hard to say

the clanking is thewatts link in the rear of the car--it mayb be called something else but it like the stablizer in the rear not to hard to change

Yup.
Book procedure calls fro draining freon from A/C to do timing belt - they may have and forgot to refill....
The watts link is also called bell crank - and is probable noise source...

True - didn't want to mention that - if they bent the lines out of the way and caused a leak....
