Bypass ac compressor with shorter serpentine belt 2001-02 Mercury Sable LS


Because in most cases the routing will not work without the pulley for the compressor being in use. That's why some engines have a dummy pulley available to use in place of the compressor.
Not using the compressor pulley can cause the belt to drive a pulley the wrong direction, or not have the grooved side of the belt on a pulley.

The ac compressor is seized .I need to replace belt but I need to bypass the ac pulley.Do i need to buy a bypass pulley?


If the pulley on the compressor will not turn freely, then yes if a bypass pulley exists you would need to use it in place of the compressor.
If the compressor pulley turns but the compressor is locked up, just unplug the compressor clutch.

I got a 97 cavalier the comprssor is shot and i weant to take out the compressor and find a shorter belt what size belt do i need


I would just leave things the way they are

Why spend time & money when you don't
have to

You don't just change the belt,thus the added expense

You need a bypass kit to replace the compressor

Check online or at parts store to research that

The car is 16 years old ,save your money & buy a
code reader for OBD2 or some tools to work on
your car,they always need updating

Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue


I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

!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.
