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

remove the belt and by using a string or a thin robe put it as the belt round an pulleys and afterwards measure the length of the robe which will be the new size. as regards the width you have the old one.
