Here's a tip that i hope works for you, If you look on the accessory belt routing, it may have a diagram on it for the option "with A/C" and "without A/C" All you need to do is look at the diagram "without A/C" and make sure there's not an idler pully inplace of the A/C pump. Then all you do is order a serp belt for same make/model/engine car, just without A/C which will take up for the excess slack in the old belt. Allthough it is a caddy, it may have no option without A/C, meaning every caddy had A/C. Something to look at, and also try calling your nearest advance auto or autozone and have them look it up without a/c, and ask if that is an option.
Good luck!

adjust ur belt by following steps
now that you know where the components are these components are driven by a belt. So when you turn your AC on there’s a belt that’s driving the AC compressor, when you turn the stirring wheel and you have that nice that easy feel of turning the stirring wheel when you’re parallel parking your car that’s the power stirring pump doing its job. Your alternator is keeping the battery charged, the lights on and the engine running. So I want to show you where the belts are, what they look like, how to adjust them and how to tell a bad belt from a good belt. As you can see these are your drive belts, this is the AC drive belt it drives the AC compressor, this is the alternator drive belt it drives the alternator, if you look down here you can see this is where the adjustment is on that AC compressor belt, if you look right here this is the top adjusting bolt for adjusting the alternator either up or down to tighten or loosen the belt. There’s a bolt down here that locks the alternator in place and this bolt is the pivot bolt for the alternator. So if you’re going to let’s say remove your alternator belt you’d have to remove these covers, loosen this bolt, loosen this bolt that’s underneath this cover and adjust this bolt to either lower the alternator or raise the alternator, if you’re belt was too loose you’ll pull up on the alternator, if the belt was too tight you’ll

I need to replace my a/c compressor on my 1999 Dodge Intrepid,the bearings are bad how can I fix it so I can still drive it without replacing a/c compressor?


Get a smaller serpentine belt that would fit the rest of the drive pulleys and not attach to the pulley on the clutch pulley of the AC compressor.Inquire at an auto parts store or Dodge dealer to find out what size of belt could be used on an Intrepid without AC,

LOCATION OF AIR CONDITION COMPRESSOR IN 97 OLDS ACHIEVA


The compressor is located on the engine with a belt driving it, It is usually down the bottom where you can't get to it, most of them are removed from underneath. You have 3 or 4 things that are belt driven, in case you don't know which is which, the power steering pump, the alternator, and the ac compressor, and sometimes you will find an air pump, or a water pump. The ac compressor is easily identified by the 2 big aluminum pipes going into it. Hope this helps.

Could it be the pulley on the AC that's squealing? Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the squeal. If it is the AC, you can get a belt that is shorter, and bypass the pump, since it doesn't work anyway. Try some belt dressing first. When the engine is running, just spray it on the inside of the belt.

Just had this exact same problem with my car. Sears Automotive said that it may just be simpler to get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor. Talked to someone at another store and they suggested the same thing instead of spending a ton of money to replace the compressor. So in short, yes and that is confirmed by two mechanics.

hi there it sounds to me that the bearings are going bad on your ac/c compressor

you can bypass it by getting a smaller belt
to get a size you can take a piece of string or rope and go around the remaining pulleys like alternator power steering and crank shaft then tie a know take it to napa and have them match as close as possible then install that belt this will solve your problem until you replace the compressor
the other way is go to a salvage yard look for you make and model without a/c there will be most likely a pulley and bracket in the place of the a/c compressor
take a picture of the set up and take the pulley off including the mount bolts and then remove th compressor on your car and install the pulley and you can use the same belt
