No - because of the routing of the belt around the idler pulley (above "A/C" in diagrm below)- there must be an AC pulley - or dummy pulley of the same diameter installed.

is there another way to run serpentine belt - c44d64e.gif
Getting a shorter belt and eliminating the A/C pulley cannot be accomplished because of it's proximity to the flywheel - and must go on top of the idler pulley so there is enough contact friction to drive the belt fully.

    thats what im saying... there is no non-ac belt available - the only way os to have a dummy pulley or simply disconnect the AC.



    FixYa was not allowing pics at the time for whatever reason - here is it again.. I have a few other answers with bad pics links.

Serpentine belt Ford 350 how to replace without AC how to put on the Belt


Dear Steve,
You have not mentioned the year, make, or model of the vehicle, but I am guessing you wish to install a serpentine belt on a Ford motor product that had a AC compressor, and you wish to put on a belt bypassing that compressor.
Well, maybe so, maybe no.
I have tried this many times.
Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
You problem will be in the routing and the clearances.
You will need to have the belt run or operate all the accessories and equipment except the AC.
If you will take a piece of rope or tape, and try to stretch that into the position of the future belt, you may see quickly whether the new shorter belt will "hit" a problem, or even if it will be too close to an item (such as the AC compressor) to be installed.
God bless your efforts.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

My compressor and clutch need to be replaced, it wrecked my serpentine belt. Can I somehow bypass the AC system so that I will have heat and defrost but no AC? 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS


Yep. Ask the parts people if there's a belt for your vehicle with ac delete. If not you'll have to measure the run without the ac pump. Use a string and wind it around the pulleys the same way the belt will run then measure the string. Should help you get close to the right length.

Trying to find a serpentine belt size with out Ac for a 1997jeep grand cherokee laredo. V8, 5.2L


You're not going to find a serpentine belt for that truck without AC because it didn't exist. They all had AC standard, which means, whether or not you RUN an AC system the compressor has to remain installed since the pulley was part of the serpentine routing.

Can I drive a 2003 saturn L200 without serpentine belt?


As crazy as it sounds, I don't see why not. Based on my limited knowledge of a 2002 L200, the power steering is run off the back of the camshaft and the water pump is driven by the timing belt. The only things the serpentine belt runs are the A/C and alternator. Obviously you won't make it very far running without an alternator, but at worst you kill your battery. Serpentine belt on a 2.2l 4 cylinder 2002 L200 has nothing to do with the water pump or power steering pump.

My AC compressor went out on my 2004 Chevy Blazer. Since winter is here, I just want to bypass the ac. I bought a belt for the same yr/make without ac. Where can I find a serpentine belt routing diagram to...


its the same. but a different pulley takes place of the a/c compressor. I know DORMAN makes a few "bypass pulleys" to do this, but dont know if they make one for your truck. at the worst... you will need to get a pulley and bracket from the dealer for a truck without a/c . as long as your a/c pulley bearing is ok, you can let the belt run there.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
