Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Pully on air compressor broke.

I have a 89 olds cutlass cierra and the air compressor pully broke off. The factory made a serpentine belt for the same car, but made it for the car without the compressor.. if i get a belt thats made to bypass the compressor, will that still fit mine? even though mine was made with a compressor? thanks'

Yes, It will Work. Just make sure that the Place where you get the Belt will allow you to Return the Belt if it will not Fit. Sometimes you may need a Shorter or Longer Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

    the belt direction is not proper without the air condition pulley because the belt is two sided, one with rim, the other without.

The pully on the compressor is bad can i just leave off the compressor and bypass it with a different size belt


Yes. there are basically three ways:

1. Put in a new a/c compressor.

2. Try a smaller serpentine belt. If this model came also w/o a/c, that serpentine belt should work fine. If all Santa Fes came with a/c then like you were saying try a smaller belt. You might have to try different smaller belt sizes(as far as I know) until you really get it right, which is not easy.

3. See if they make an a/c compressor delete pully for your particular model. This is basically just a single standalone pully (dummy pully). Aftermarket companies do not make them for all models, but if they make it for yours, you can use the same serpentine belt w/o a compressor. The internet is the best place to check.

What size serpentine belt do you need to bypass a compressor in a 1993 Cadillac Sedan DeVille? it has a 4.9 liter engine .. and is it possibal


You will need what is called an idle pully and be fitted instead of the compressor the same belt will fit. This is the correct way. An alternative way is to take the bely off the compressor pully and leave it on the other pully's pull it hand tignt holding the excess of the belt in your hand. Now check the belt won't rub on the engine or component's. If the belt has fully cleared all then Release the tensioner all the way and measure the length of belt needed to go around all pully's except the compressor. Take the measurement and the old belt to an autofactor's the old belt is important to have because the dimentions of the belt depth and width are also important. They will be able to check for a belt to suit your need's. Belt dosent need to be the exact length of your measurement 1 to 3 inches longer should be adjustable. cheers

I have a 2000 Lincoln Towncar. The air-conditioner compressor broke and also broke that big belt. A guy that lives near replaced the compressor and belt but now nothing electric works!!!! whats wrong!!!!!...


He may have accidently knocked some wires loose during the install or when your belt flew off the pullies it hit some wires and broke them. Check for wire damage around the pullies.

Belt inst


For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.

Belt


You gotta move the idler pully with a wrench and the belt will loosen enough to come off. The trick is that you have to have one hand on the wrench holding the pully down while you r & r the belt. My wife held it for me when I did mine

Serpentine belt slips off idler pulley


The A/C pully is supposed to spin freely until the AC is activated to run.. The cranshaft pully does not. Replace the tensioner pully. The belt has to fit in between the grooves on the pullys.
