Yes as long as you check with a shorter belt to make sure the shortened belt doesnt touch any other part.It would be easier to replace the clutch pack from the wreckers as it easy to remove from the compressor pump and replace.Pump doesnt have to come off engine.The biggest problem youll have if shortening the belt is that your power steer will likely be affected due to rotation speeds changing,anyway good luck and merry xmas

You may do better to work on your own vehicles

Look for a worn crank damper pulley or & all
pulleys, that the belt your having trouble with
rides on.

No reason at all for a belt to break & not check
why, before installing a new one

What your looking for is alignment & good spring
on tensioner

What is the serpentine belt routing for olds bravada with 4.3 and a/c


What year? Typically starting at the crank pulley the belt will go around the water pump then to the power steering pump then to the ac compressor then under the idler pulley then to the alternator then to the tensioner and then ending back at the crank pulley. Some older models have the tensioner in a different location but the routing is almost identical.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

What size of belt can I use on a ford Windstar 2000 3.8L if i want to bypass the a/c compressor.


You may have a problem finding that info out, but an easy way to do it if you can see and reach it, is to make a mark with chalk on the power steering pulley, as well as crankshaft pulley, then run a string or similar from the mark on power steering pulley, around AC compressor pulley, and down to mark on crankshaft, then measure that distance. Now run same string from power steering pulley mark, directly to crankshaft pulley mark, (by-passing AC pulley), and measure that as well. Subtract by-passed length from, non by-passed, will give you the difference in length. Now when you go to parts store for new belt, they can give you a belt that is that much shorter than original one listed. The actual belt part # usually tells the length in it. Just subtract your difference from original, and ask for that length, same design. Sounds pretty complicated, I know, but it really isn't. You used to be able to just say" give me the one for the same vehicle without AC", but most vehicles have AC now, so it isn't quite that easy anymore. Make sure you take a good look and be sure you have the clearance so belt doesn't hit/rub on AC pulley during operation.

I need a diagram of a 2004 suzuki forenza Serpentine Belt


That's easy, there are some pulleys with ridges to grip the underside of the belt, and some are smooth for the top side of the belt.
I can only assume your belt broke and fell off so you couldn't see how it was on prior. But either way you have limited length, and the last place you would be routing the belt is the tensioner, which you should have located first, so you can have a wrench handy to fit it.

Here's what you have:
Top left= alternator (small ridged)
top right = power steering (large ridged)
Bottom right = AC compressor (large ridged)
Bottom middle = Crank Pulley (large ridged)
In middle next to Power steering = Tensioner (small shiny smooth)

Remove the air cleaner housing (two bolts)
Start on left top side and loop belt (clockwise) across the alternator to the power steering down to AC (also clockwise from right to left) then over to crank pulley (from bottom clockwise around to top of pulley) to tensioner (smooth, belt is backwards on it) which will go back up to the alternator.

At the top middle there should be a sensor protruding from the timing cover that the belt passes under as it connects between the alternator and the power steering. And you won't easily be able to fit anything besides a box-end wrench on the tensioner, so you may need some kind of extension on the wrench to get good torque on it without hurting yourself.

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
