If you look at the label on the fan shroud both the A/C equipped and non AC equipped applications are printed on the same label. Just look closely and I believe one is shown with a dotted line. The change of path occurs around the belt tensioner.

Not entirely sure that a shorter belt was needed, the routing of the belt on the passengers side of the motor takes up some of the slack.

SOURCE: serpentine belt diagram for my Ford V6 4.2L 97'

Lower left is the tensioner and above should the idler. Sometimes there is a diagram on the fan shroud or near the radiator. Without a picture I hope this makes sense.
Starting with the ac going over the top of its pulley and down to the power steering, to and under the crank shaft, going in and up and around left over the water pump to the tensioner (going under) and to the alternator over the top and then under the idler.

go to on the lower right hand side under popular topics, click on timing belts, then on the left hand side click Parts Locator and Interchange, enter your cars info and the first page that comes up will show you a camera icon for a pic of how your belt is routed. The tensioner pulley is the one mounted on a silver arm, usually at the top. Hope this helps let me know.

Do I need a compressor bypass pulley for a 2007 montana sv6 with a 3.9l engine or is there a shorter belt that can delete the a/c compressor altogether?

Hi S Ant, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

The answer to your question is "YES" you can match up a shorter belt to eliminate the A/C Compressor and later when you can afford to repair it, be sure to keep your old belt. Hope this helps and if you should find the time please visit my auto-repair-website HERE:

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.

Can you bypass the ac compressor by rerouting the belt on 1998 sc engines

Hello there
Unfortunatly if you bypass the compressor pulley the belt will end up being too long for the rest of the pulleys
But there is a good side to this cause if you go to kragen or a reliable auto parts store you can purchase a pulley kit that replaces things like this and they only cost about 20 dollars or less ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
