A/C compressor bypass for winter

The A/C compressor clutch on my 95 lumina sedan 3.1 v-6 is shot and I want to bypass the compressor. Can it be removed and ran without or do I have to replace it with a bypass wheel?

95 Chevy lumina van, heat on won't turn off. A/c


Hi wodermom26,

Your Lumina APV is a clone of the Pontiac Transport and Oldsmobile APV's which all have identical Heater & A/C controls. The Heater & A/C controls usually wear out mechanically causing no control of temperature. This is a difficult repair and is best made by a dealers ASE Certified Technician. A/C may require re-charging and or possible replacement of the hoses which carry the refrigerant as they become porous and leak. Additionally, the Compressor and its Clutch may possibly require replacement.

The High beams are controlled by pushing the Turn Signal switch forward toward the Instrument panel and have a momentary "Flash to Pass" function by pulling the Turn Signal Lever upward toward the steering wheel and return to Low Beam upon release of the turn signal Lever. If neither function of the Beam selector lights the High Beams it is pssible that the Headlamp bulbs are burned out or open connections in the wiring harnesses. Do you have an owners manual for your Lumina? If so it has information regarding the Multi-Functions of the Turn Signal Lever.

On the compressor between the pulley and the actual compressor body the electric clutch is. There you should find two wires that energizes the clutch to engauge. he clutch engages fequently even with the a/c off in order to keep the system fit. Disconect the connector to the clutch and it will run free. That should get you through the winter.
But keep in mind in winter alot of cars get wrecked in accidents. Keep your ears open with the wreckers for a compressor during the winter months; you will get it cheaper.

Can I replace the A/C clutch myself or do I need any special tools? Can I by pass this with a different belt?


bypassing the compressor is best to do. get a belt for your engine less the ac option. the removal and tear down of any compressor is not easy for a novice

How to change the belt on 1996 pontiac boneville


on the 3.8 liter v6, the pulley on the a/c compressor can be replaced if it is locked up (frozen) on the compressor. the question is what is actually locked up? if the a/c compressor is locked up but the a/c compressor pulley turns, then you need to disconnect the wire harness connecter that is on the a/c compressor pulley/clutch so you can run the defrost on the climate control. many GM cars will run the a/c when you switch the climate control to defrost especially in the winter so the a/c system stays lubed and does not lock up the a/c compressor from lack of use. you can then relace the belt without replacing the compressor pulley/clutch assembly. if the compressor pulley/clutch assembly is locked up, it will need to be replaced. i do not believe there is a way to route the belt bypassing the a/c compressor. you dont want the water pump turning in the wrong direction if you reroute the belt wrong or the engine will overheat. i hope this helps!
