How do I route my serpentine belt without an AC compressor


A car we had the AC quit working so we took it off. well you could not line the belt up so my mechanic installed the air compressor pump back on but left the hoses off so the compressor just turned with no pressure.He said that we had no alternative but put it back on. It ran several years after that. If you can't make that work go to a wrecking yard and get a junker compressor that turns.

Hi I need to replace the serpentine belt on Hyundai tucson (2004) the problem is the air con pulls seems to have siezed, can I get a smaller belt as I don't really need air con in scotland. Cheers


my autodata belt book shows 18 hyundai belt set ups 1992 to2012 and only one that runs a special belt for the ac
for all the rest the ac pulley is required as the belt runs around it to drive power steering, alternator , water pump
test the ac pulley by removing the belt( after drawing a diagram of how it runs ) and trying to spin the pulley
if it is as you say have a mobile mechanic/ ac mechanic come and remove the pulley and replace the bearing ( about 1 1/2 hour and $20.00 for the bearing
if the pulley spins then disconnect the wire to the compressor so that the clutch is not engaged for the compressor

Can i disengage the ac compressor on my pontiac monatna


you can disengage it by not turning the AC on in the vehicle. the AC is engage by the clutch once you turn the AC on in the vehicle. as far as removing the belt from the AC, you can only do that if there is only one belt going to the AC. If you have 1 continous serpentine belt, then no. unless you go to an auto parts store and get a new serpentine belt, but tell them there is no AC on the vehicle.

After just having the cooling system (i.e. radiator, hoses, water pumb, freee plugs) replace , my serpentine belt shredded and now the AC compressor clutch assembly had to be replaced ($170 labor, $106...


I agree that whomever did the work on your car should have noticed the serpentine belt needed to be replaced, you'll have a difficult time getting the mechanic to agree that he made a mistake. If it was done by the auto dealer where you bought the vehicle you may be able to get some satisfaction by going to the head manager and contacting the dealers corporate office.

I have a 1995 pontiac Bonneville compressor is locked up and broke the serpentine belt need to fix please help thanks Ron


Most cars have an option to buy a belt for a car with or without Air Conditioning. I would check first if your car offers that option (then if you don't need AC you can just buy the other belt and not have to fix the compressor). If you need AC you will have to buy a new compressor (local junkyard is your cheapest bet). I would have a mechanic install either the new belt (to make sure no other pulleys were bent when the belt snapped) or the compressor (some AC lines can be difficult or dangerous to repair or replace). Good Luck!

!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.
