SOURCE: I have a 95 Lincoln Town Car. the air compressor

best bet is to go to an auto recycler, or scrap auto parts place! If they are reputable they will be on the locator, so if they don't have it, they can search North American yards for one!

Can I use a short serpentine belt. AC compressor isn't working.


I have a 2000 E430. I just did this job because my ac compressor froze. I went to O'reilly and bought a serpentine belt 6pk2310.(different brand has it as k0910). The numbers after the part number is the length in mm or inches. Eg. 0910 = 91 inches == 2810mm. Just follow the diagram and bypass the ac compressor. Tools: 15mm wrench for the pulley tensioner. It took me 5 minutes to do this job and be on the road again. It is very easy.
On the Right is the normal diagram.

On the left is how you bypass the AC compressor on a E320/E430 2000-2002 engine.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.


Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

I need to buy a serpentine belt that will by pass the air conditioner. does Lincoln make one that size


They didn't make any 1999 Town cars without a/c. You can get a belt but I would suggest using a string to get the size and then go the auto parts store and have them match it.

Serpintine belt


if the ac is not working then if you leave it switched off there will be no need to get a special belt to by-pass it. The pulley on the ac compressor is just an idler pulley that only turns the compressor when there is current to the clutch in the pulley. IF you never use the ac the pulley just spins . The problem with special belts is if they fail (and they do ) it will be where/ when you cannot get a special belt but you will always get a proper belt from any spares store or garage.

My compressor is bad on my 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4, i am wanting to bypass the belt with a new (smaller belt) can u please tell me what size i will need


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

What you are looking for is called an 'air conditioner compressor bypass pulley'. Most chain auto parts stores have them in stock.

All you do is install the bypass pulley and use a shorter belt.

The only downside is the cost of $25-$40. That's about one-third the cost of a remanufactured unit and the labor is compatible.

All the best

Air conditioner pump slips on serpentine belt when activated


see if that vehicle came without A/C. If so ck for the belt availability and see if it can be put od bypassing the compressor. At the least, disconnect the compressor clutch wirin g so the A/C will not function at all. until you can manage a the cost of a pump. Good luck, Ned

How can i bypass the air compressor without a bypass pulley


I believe you have a serpentine belt which controls everything so its impossible to bypass....if the clutch bearing in the a/c is bad i suggest replacing... to try to alter the belt and routing can lead to failure and then you will be stranded
