I do not believe the problem is the belt.The problem is possibly the compressor clutch.On a KA24 engine,it is mounted low and close to the front crank seal and when this goes, it shoots oil into the clutch and causes it to slip(and bad front seals are a problem endemic to KA24's).If this goes on long enough, it will kill the clutch.The other possibility is that the clutch is going due to a bad cycling switch that is allowing excess pressure to build up and lock the compressor causing the pulley to spin without the compressor moving.
