    Yesterday I was driving my ST with the A/C ON (max), suddenly I noticed the direction got hard, the battery light turned on and engine started to overheat. I stopped the car and I notice that the belt was loose, completely out of place.

    After some checking I noticed that the A/C compressor was completely loose, the screws were broken (only two) I didn't have enough time to check the problem but it looks like the lack of one of the screws (a friend told me it uses three) worn out the other two and over some time they broke.

    I understand I have to remove the holding bracket and remove the broken screws, don't know if this is possible. any advice in how to fix it?

    BTW my ST is the newer version of 2001 4.0L
