2006 ml350 air compressor locked up Need Emergency Fix

Is there a shorter belt that I can use to bypass the air compressor so that I can get the vehicle back home. It will take a week or so to get new compressor but vehicle broke down out of town and had it towed to nearest town. I know they made a testing belt for prior years but can not find one for this model.

Yes, there is a testing belt available, we use it all the time in our shop, you just order a belt with the a/c option taken out of the filters in EPC

SOURCE: installing back up camera

First, your ML's COMAND head MUST be pre-installed to back up camera. Check with a voltmeter the plugs no. 1 and 7 in the back of the COMAND, they must have power. If not, you'll need a COMAND head with back up camera option.
If yes, you are free to buy a MB back up camera, install and plug and have a dealer encode your MOST fiber ring to let the car know you are using a BUC.
If you plan to use an after market BUC, like Pioneer's, you'll need to buy an adaptor. Expensive tho.
Good luck.

Yes you can. Getting the right size may be difficult but then again it may be as simple as getting a belt for the same make/model without airconditioning.

Bypass air condition belt


If you are trying to bypass the compressor for the air conditioner then you need to ensure two things.

1. That there is some way to tension that belt if the compressor is bypassed.
2. you will need to find a shorter belt that has the same physical profile. Wrap a string around the pulleys that remain and measure the length. A shop should then be able to give you a belt that will fit. Take the old belt with you to ensure it has the right profile.

Bypass ac compressor with shorter serpentine belt 2001-02 Mercury Sable LS


Because in most cases the routing will not work without the pulley for the compressor being in use. That's why some engines have a dummy pulley available to use in place of the compressor.
Not using the compressor pulley can cause the belt to drive a pulley the wrong direction, or not have the grooved side of the belt on a pulley.

The ac compressor is seized .I need to replace belt but I need to bypass the ac pulley.Do i need to buy a bypass pulley?


If the pulley on the compressor will not turn freely, then yes if a bypass pulley exists you would need to use it in place of the compressor.
If the compressor pulley turns but the compressor is locked up, just unplug the compressor clutch.

Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue


I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

How do you bypass the compressors


Usually you can get the belt for the model of your car that came without air conditioning (Canadian model) and you can either remove the compressor and install the shorter belt or just install the shorter belt and not wrap it around your A/C compressor Pulley.
