I recently had to do this also. The correct belt for the OHV 3.0L from Auto Zone is 822K6. It's a tight fit getting it on, but has just enough clearance to miss the compressor pulley.

How do I bypass the ac compressor with a new serpentine belt? the ac isn't necessary so we are removing the compressor and are wondering what belt to put on after, so it's not really bypassing, just s


Can't you just unplug the ac unit and keep the same belt? that would save you from having to change the original belt. which will make it a lot easier then trying to re-invent the wheel.

How to bypass the ac pulley on a 2003 hyundai sonata


You can bypass the ac compressor by using a 82" belt. Feed the belt from the back of the engine at the water pump. Disconnect the power steering line at pump. It's a lot easier if you use some type of hook to hold/maneuver the belt. (I used a bent rebar) Follow this routing diagram I created. Bam! No more ac problems!

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 ??

My air conditoning compressor is making a grinding noise and it hasn't worked for years. Is there a way to change the pully on the water pump and just put a new serpantine belt on to bypass the compressor?


What engine?

They make a pulley adapter to install in the place of the a/c compressor for vehicles that the a/c con not be bypassed. You local auto parts store will have them. Sometimes they cause more problems than they solve.

The best solution is to replace the compressor with a new or even a used compressor.

It could be the belt, but also be the bearings squealing, it will lock the compressor down and snap that belt. But you can bypass the compressor with a smaller belt.

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.

Bypassing air compressor in a chevy 95 g20 van


Well if you're trying to bypass the air conditioning compressor, your original serpentine belt will obviously not work as it will be too long. Installing another pulley would really be more work that it's worth and likely cost a fair amount since you'd have to have a custom bracket made, or a mount to fit in place of the compressor. Your best bet would be to have your local parts supply look up the belt for the same make, model, year and engine specs as your vehicle but without Air Conditioning. The g20 uses all the same mounting locations for other belt driven accessories regardless of the presence of an AC compressor. Therefore, the belt should fit just fine. Also, you should spot on the belt routing diagram under the hood that it shows the optional routing for a belt without AC. (It does on mine anyway) Good luck and let me know how it goes.
