    THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR SPEEDY RESPONSE TO MY DILEMMA...BOTH ARE GREAT IDEAS...

  • whtghst51 Jan 31, 2009

    thanx for all suggestions.. I ended up getting a belt 6 inches shorter (after measuring length bypassing the ac pulley)..it worked like a charm....and I am going to take later advice to buy ac compressor pulley from AutoZone--they are only a few blocks down from where I live...this is alot better than getting entire new ac compressor,,,,

Not unless you can take about 4 inches out of belt. shorter belt is what you need. take some string and route it just like the belt goes but eliminate the compressor and take that to auto parts store an see if they can match one up for you.

How to install a serpentine belt on a 2001 Volkswagen Passat


there are 15 serpentine diagrams for the belt on vw engines to 2001
some have no ac , power steering etc
need engine size
you could try this the grooves are for driving pulleys so any grooved pulley it has to go around
flat pulleys run on the back of the belt so they will be idler pulleys
start at the crank and work to the left if there is a flat pulley between two grooved pulleys the back goes around it and so on

Wont to get rid of aircondition compresser what


you could try and measure around all the pulys and figure out what size belt is needed or try calling a ford dealer or some local auto parts store, they might be able to pull up a belt size/part number for a engien that is not running a a/c compressor.

I need instructions and a diagram to bypass the ac pulley when replacing the serpentine belt in a 2001 ford taurus.The belt broke, due to age and a frozen ac pulley. I need to know what size belt I will...


simple trick provided you can do this by running some twine around your pulleys allowing for1-2 inches less for slack adjuster an that will pretty close.or they may have for that system without ac meaning the condenser unit.

Serpentine belt routing, 2001 ford taurus 3.0 l v-6.


Should be a diagram on the under side of your hood, or in the engine compartment somewhere. If not, wrap it around the crank pulley, and work your way around, putting flat sides to flat pulleys, and ribs to ribs. There will be a couple of combinations, but you should be able to get it.

Replace a serpentine belt on a 97 ford taurus


use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

Broken Serpentine belt. Traced problem to air compressor. The pulley will not turn. Is this a seized compressor? Can I remove the compressor without removing the power steering. Is there a quick solution.


Sometimes you can route the belt the same as one with no air. your parts dealer may have a belt route if yours is missing from the car. sometimes you need to put an idler where the compressor is. Don't run the car without the belt. Even if you put a used compressor on without charging the system, you need the belt for the water pump.

Is there another way to run serpentine belt without using the ac at all?


No - because of the routing of the belt around the idler pulley (above "A/C" in diagrm below)- there must be an AC pulley - or dummy pulley of the same diameter installed.

c44d64e.gif
Getting a shorter belt and eliminating the A/C pulley cannot be accomplished because of it's proximity to the flywheel - and must go on top of the idler pulley so there is enough contact friction to drive the belt fully.
