SOURCE: how to change the power

The power steering belt is on the front of the motor and is driven by the crankshaft. Below the steering pump is an adjuster bolt. It moves a pulley underneath the pump. To adjust the belt tension located the nut that tightens the adjuster pulley the the pump bracket . It is on the right side of the bracket , the pulley is on the left facing the back of the car. Loosen the pulley mount nut . You can now turn the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to tighten and loosen the belt for replacement. I recommend replacing the alternator belt at the same time. To do this , Unhook the negative battery cable, loosen the bolt holding block to the slide arm, reach under the alternator and loosen the lower mount bolt, not you can adjust the position of the alternator using the adjuster bolt.

How to bypass the air condtioning

Not really. I am not aware of that model being sold without ac.
So there would not be a belt and idler pulley used in place of the compressor.
The easiest way to fix it is to get a used compressor and put it on. You don't have to charge the ac for the pulley to work.

Power steering stopped working, battery light came on, car overheated on a 2001 taurus: being told by mechanic that the air conditioner compressor needs to be replaced. Sounded to like the belt needs to...

unforutionatly your mechanic may be right if the ac compressor locked up it will eat the belt and make the other things not work like the water pump ,altanator,power steering.esay to check though remove belt see if you can turn the ac pump by hand.if you mechanic is worth his salt he will even show you this.

I have a 2001 Plymouth Neon,the belt for the power steering and air conditioner is not staying on so not woking any of these units.I have checked with some dealers and they are giving 2 different estimates...

this is correct if you are talking about the power steering or ac, the power steering pulley can be replaced with out the pump being replaced, now, if its the ac throwing the belt it depends on if the compressor is frozen or just the pulley is bad, if the compressor is bad then replace the whole unit, to same some money get a used one, if the a/c doesnt work ddo you care? because a used one may have problem but will hold the belt. hope this is helpful.

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.
