Size of serpatine belt to reroute with out AC

The cluctch inside my AC converter is making some squealing, so I figured instead of replacing the AC for a couple hundred, I can just reroute the serpatine belt inside the AC so it won't even turn. Does anyone the length of belt I need?

Try replacing the belt tensioner. Comes out easily, once you figure out access to it. Remove inspection panel inside front passenger side wheel well. Tensioner is right there, two bolts. If the spring gets weak, the belt will squeak.

Could it be the pulley on the AC that's squealing? Use a mechanic's stethoscope to locate the squeal. If it is the AC, you can get a belt that is shorter, and bypass the pump, since it doesn't work anyway. Try some belt dressing first. When the engine is running, just spray it on the inside of the belt.

How can i stop my AC belt from making noises when my AC is on


The reason your belt is making a noise is either your belt is worn and needs replacing or the belt tension is out of adjustment and needs checking and adjusting.
It is a good idea to replace it anyway specially if the belt has small cracks on the inside.

I need to do serpatine belt on 96 ford taruaus 3.0


On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.

!991 Olds 88...can I replace with a shorter serpentine belt?


Unplug wires going to the compressor, and let it freewheel, if it's not noisy in that mode. A/C compressor won't kick in if not connected. A lot less hassle than going the other way.
