Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
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.

it uses a spring loaded tensioner.use a breaker bar to rotate the tension and it should just come off.if u need a pic or anything else to do it let me know,

loosen the tensioner, then put the new pulley on the exact same way the old one came off, then tighten the tensioner back up, it is easy to say, but doing its a different story
