The A/C Compressor won't be a problem,
unless the bearing seized for the clutch pulley

Can you bypass a bad ac in 01 Lincoln L's 3.0 v6


If you mean, you don't want to run the ac compressor because it's worn out/broke... then yes. Just disconnect the belt.
If you have had an electric unit fitted, just get the system drained.

Noise when I start car, then it quits. Noise comes on if I turn the fan or AC on. I inspected the fan and didnt see anything that it was rubing against. What is causing the noise?


this is possibly a belt slipping possible from a tight compressor unit which is belt driven.Remove belt and feel the load on the compressor by hand...it should turn with some drag but quite freely.

A/C compressor pulley is seized and burning the serpentine belt


yeah its seized up[ and they dont make a repair kit for that one either. they have at most auto parts stores an ac bypass pulley . its a bracket and pulley so you can bypass the factory ac unit and still run the factory belt. but if you decide to change the ac unit there are 5 bolts holding the unit down .have the system evacuated.loosen belt and drop down out of your way. take the ac lines off the compressor and set aside . there are two bolts on top in front and there are 3 bolts in back on top tieing together a triangle shape mounting plate , take all 5 loose and out.disconnect ac wires (snap clip) lift , lightly pry off old ac unit.set aside and reverse the procedure to install your new or salvage yard ac unit. refrigerant chargers can be purchased from wall mart ( there cheaper) at $30. roughly 2 1/2 cans will completely fill the system just follow on label instructions. its all easy to do if you can use wrenches and have a little knowledge. and you get the satisfaction of doing it yourself. and save a bunch of $ along the way.

A/c went pop and hot air started pouring out.


Possibly compressor belt broken. Maybe sudden loss of coolant gas. Fix bad part and recharge.

Grinding sound when running a mechanic said its timing chain..


First question. IS IT NOISY ONLY WHEN THE A/C IS ON ? If yes , its the compressor, if not could ne the A/C compressor clutch bearing. Best found using a " mechanics " stethoscope such as a doctor uses to pinpoint the noise. Hope this helps

Have a 1990 Jeep Laredo w/I6 4.0 and AC. Need Replacement belt.


The compressor has become an integral part of the system to the point that there is no listing for optional no a/c. Looking at the pulley/belt arrangement, the only way you could do this would be to remove the compressor and replace it with another idler pulley. Eliminating the compressor, not using an extra idler and using a shorter belt would cause the water pump to run backwards (won't work that way). If the clutch on the compressor is OK why not disconnect compressor from the harness and just let the clutch freewheel without engaging?

Air condition unit bearings are gone


Don't know what engine you have, but as long as that belt only drives the AC you should be o.k. If the AC isn't noisy when freewheeling, or off, you can simply unplug the connector at the compressor, but if noisy all the time, yes the belt will have to come off, just double check that the belt isn't running anything else like water pump or something on the back (smooth side) side of the belt. Be aware that your defrost etc, will take a little longer to do it's job with that disconnected as it uses the ac compressor to displace moisture(humidity) in the air.

Alternator Belt


TAKE A ROPE AND RUN IT AS IF IT WERE A BELT ALONG THE ALTERNATOR AND CRANKSHAFT. MEASURE THE LENGTH OF ROPE THEN GO TO PARTS STORE TO BUY A SMALLER BELT. THE IDEA IS TO BYPASS THE AC BEING A 94 IM SURE IT HASN'T WORKED IN QUITE SOME TIME, I'VE BEEN A MECHANIC FOR 8 YEARS AND WE BYPASS THESE ALL THE TIME, THE TENSIONER ON THAT CAR I BELIEVE IS ON THE ALTERNATOR, HONDA MADE THE AC OPTIONAL.. BELTS ARE USUALLY NAMED AFTER THERE SIZE (IE 4060934 IS 93.4 INCHES LONG) IF NEED BE REMOVE THE AC COMPRESSOR.
