my buddy needs some help on his 89 XJ.

while he was driving a weird "bearing-sounding" noise came from up front, the belt started slipping, he smelled burning belt, and shut it off. he thought that the ac compressor seized up, so he freed up the bearings but when he
turns it on, the serpentine belt doesnt move the harmonic balancer spins. so the engine is running, but something is stopping the rest of things from moving. any ideas??? thanks!!

Take off the belt and check all the pulleys.
