Unless you can find a way to route a different belt to go around all necessary pulleys without the a/c compressor, the only thing I can think of is to buy a junkyard unit and install it without freon, leaving the compressor clutch plug disconnected 'till you can get home to do the job right. Even if you need to buy the tools to do the job it's still cheaper than towing or a shop repair. Changing the compressor bearing requires special tools that you likely dont have in your back pocket!!

Why does my water pump belt on my 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara keep shredding

You may have a pulley out of alignment or a bearing that is bad on one device or the idler or tensioner pulley.

My fan is hitting a pulley? what is it hitting, why, and can I drive safely to the mechanic or parts store?

Most 98 model Jeeps use an electric fan mounted to the radiator. If yours has a fan blade mounted to the water pump pulley, the problem could be the bearing in the water pump or the bearing in the fan clutch.
There-s no way for me to know what it is hitting without being there in person.
You may be able to remove the fan blade and leave the pulley bolted to the pump and drive the truck a mile or two.

Loose water pump pulley???

4 cyl or V6 - - gas or diesel ?
You can go to one of the online auto parts websites and look up the water pump to see if it looks like your pulley. Or visit a local store.
If the water pump pulley is moving, the bearing may be failing which would require replacement.

Power steering pump replaced and now squealing sound. Auto shop says bearing "all of a sudden" went out. I'm disgusted...

The power steering pump comes with a new pulley and bearing. Which bearing is going bad? If it's the PSP they should cover it. Have them pinpoint the bad bearing with a mechanic's stethoscope. Mostly idler pulleys go bad but they need to pinpoint it and not just take a shot at which one is bad. I know it's disgusting but cars are a bad expense and once they are a certain age become a money pit.
Good luck and I hope this helps.

Water pump pulley 1996 jeep cherokee

James, I believe the pulley is just bolted to the pump shaft, so u should be able to remove it and reuse it. The play in it is in the shaft of the water pump, so the pulley should be fine, just remove and bolt to the new pump.

Power steering is out. overflow tank blowing smoke

The key to this is likely the belt. Is the belt there? Is the tension correct? If OK, do all the drive and driven pulleys turn when it is running? Did it overheat again on the trip back home? Check the system for leaks. Even if you find the problem was not the thermostat, change it. Do not change the pump unless it has a leak or other mechanical failure. Like a bad shaft bearing.

Did you take the time to clean all pulleys good with brake clean or similar cleaner, when belt was off? . Sometimes a little antifreeze, or windsheild washer antifreeze can get spilled on the belt(s) and cause that, as well as an oil drip. Take a flashlight & double check that you don't have oil dripping down on there somewhere. Only other thought is that maybe power steering pump working too hard or alternator on it's way out, causing extra load on the belt.
