Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe v6 2.7liter. Ac compressor locked up and broke the serpentine belt.

AC compressor locked up and broke the serpentine belt. The car has a lot of miles, and some other problems so I'm looking for a less than new compressor fix. I'll be looking at reman units. But a mechanic friend said there might be an assembly/part that has the pulley etc but no actual compressor that can sit int the place where the compressor sits, but he can't remember what it's called (which is making research difficult). Anyone know what it's called (not a shorter belt/bypass). The ac hasn't worked in a couple of years so that's not a problem

Try A/C compressor clutch bypass. I believe some that I looked up were about $40-60 made by Dohrman. Your car is Foreign so it may be much higher. They are available through autoparts stores.

I searched and Advance Autoparts had some for different cars and a 15% Online discount. But you need to look at what has to come off to install it.

Also the part may show 6G where G is the number of grooves on the belt. This is crucial.

Depending on the configuration of the pulleys, all you may need to do is use a smaller belt and leave the old stuff in place. If A/C was an option for your car, try a belt from a VW without A./C.

You just need to remember that the Tensioner pulley has to work or the belt will slip off. That gives you a little leeway. Check for a different Tensioner pulley for the Non-A/C equipped VW which may be needed for this change.

The AC compressor on my 98 RAV4 is making alot of noise. Can I get a new serpentine belt to delete the AC? Or is there an easier fix? I'm looking for the cheapest solution.


The cheapest solution is to replace the a/c clutch without servicing the a/c. Just leave the a/c off. Even with a bad compressor the clutch will still serve as the idler.

I don't know of any way to by-pass the A/C compressor or any component in a serpentine belt system; but, you can unplug the compressor clutch (at the nose of the compressor, behind the pulley), then the compressor will not turn and the pulley just acts as an idler.

On the 2001 Sante Fe that year had with or without AC, I have AC but want to know if I can get the non-AC belt and simple bypass the compressor converting it to non ac??


Is the compressor locked up and this is why you want to make it non-AC? If so just remove the compressor clutch plate and you will be fine. Respond if you need instructions for this.

The A/C in my 2002 ford Taurus SES (about 185,000 miles on it) went out about a month ago. I had the mechanic at the Midas shop in Billings take a super-quick look at my car about 2 weeks ago because there...


if the compressor bearing seized or fell apart than that would cause the belt to break or fall off. You cannot bypass the a/c compressor with a shorter belt. You can either replace the compressor or get a compressor bypass pulley but then you will not have a/c ever again until you install a compressor.
