Sometimes you can bypass the ac with another type of belt sometimes you can call autoparts and ask for a vbelt for a none ac model sutch as yours if not then a smaller belt will do but you can go through 20 to 30 before find the right one so ask for your model of car without ac to see if exsists

SOURCE: can i bypass a.c. pully with a shorter serpentine

yes as long as all of the other pullies are still turning the same way. The best way to do it is to go GM, and ask for the A/C Delete pully (similiar to the 1LE pully)

SOURCE: My 2004 PT cruiser is on its second serpentine

I'm wondering why your going through tensioner pulleys so fast. Sounds like you may have the belts too tight. Unfortuantely I believe that pulley is actually pressed on and will break if you try to remove it but you might be able to find one at a junk yard. As far as the bushing being cracked, if it is a bushing it is common for them th appear cracked over time but you should replace worn parts.

SOURCE: 1999 T&C with a 3.8L

how many advance and autozone parts stores do you drive by each day? i go by at least 3 of each just on my way to work. not to mention all the NAPA and independent car parts stores out there.
now when you need a car part, a car parts store is the place to go, seems self evident to me. same principle involved with car tires, a tire store is a good place to find them and they are all over the place as well. if you want to pay a lot more you can go to the parts desk at a dealer.

SOURCE: belts and pulley replaced on chrysler LHS, and now it squeals really bad

Try some belt dressing. If that doesn't work, the tensioner pulley may not have been installed properly. Return for warrant service.

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.

!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.

Shorter serpentine belt on 2001 jetta tdi

Yes you can get a shorter belt and bypass the ac. It may be as simple as going to the parts store and tell them you have 2001 jetta no ac. Just keep the receipt.
You should also disconnect the a/c compressor connectors/wires/plugs also, try doing this before you bypass the ac first incase doing so gives you warning lights on the dash board.
Also know that the defrost setting uses the a/c so it will take longer to get the condensation off the inside of the window.
