You can Do this. The only Problem is Getting a Shorter Belt to Replace the One that you have. The only Resolution for this is to get a few Different Sizes and Try them. Make Sure that the Place you Buy them from Will take them Back if they do not Work. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    That is What I gave you. It depends on the Belt Tensioner what size you will need. They all have a Different Tension Setting.

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.

Can i bypass my 2005 nissan altima ac compressor with a shorter serpentine belt if so what siz do i need and is the diagram different for the factory placement of tbe belt


Why do this? If your compressor is frozen you can simply disconnect the wire going to the AC clutch and it will never engage and you have nothing to worry about. Ok, so you lug around a useless 15 pound weight but at least you do not have to go through all of the hassle in getting a new belt to bypass the AC unit.

Have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe v6 2.7liter. Ac compressor locked up and broke the serpentine belt.


Try A/C compressor clutch bypass. I believe some that I looked up were about $40-60 made by Dohrman. Your car is Foreign so it may be much higher. They are available through autoparts stores.

I searched and Advance Autoparts had some for different cars and a 15% Online discount. But you need to look at what has to come off to install it.

Also the part may show 6G where G is the number of grooves on the belt. This is crucial.

Depending on the configuration of the pulleys, all you may need to do is use a smaller belt and leave the old stuff in place. If A/C was an option for your car, try a belt from a VW without A./C.

You just need to remember that the Tensioner pulley has to work or the belt will slip off. That gives you a little leeway. Check for a different Tensioner pulley for the Non-A/C equipped VW which may be needed for this change.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...


If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

My AC compressor went out on my 2004 Chevy Blazer. Since winter is here, I just want to bypass the ac. I bought a belt for the same yr/make without ac. Where can I find a serpentine belt routing diagram to...


its the same. but a different pulley takes place of the a/c compressor. I know DORMAN makes a few "bypass pulleys" to do this, but dont know if they make one for your truck. at the worst... you will need to get a pulley and bracket from the dealer for a truck without a/c . as long as your a/c pulley bearing is ok, you can let the belt run there.

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.
