I believe you have a serpentine belt which controls everything so its impossible to bypass....if the clutch bearing in the a/c is bad i suggest replacing... to try to alter the belt and routing can lead to failure and then you will be stranded

2001 impala 3.8 liter belt size to bypass AC unit


You can also remove the a/c compressor and install a bypass pulley in its place. You can still use the standard belt this way, just run it to the bypass pulley instead of the a/c compressor. RockAuto has them at the link.

Is there a way to install a bypass belt for a burned out air compressor on a Ford Contour 2000, if so where and is there a manual or video instructions on how to do it yourself?


Don't know about the bypass belt, but what many do is buy and install an "A/C delete pulley"-a freewheeling pulley that is put on where the compressor mounts. Then you can use the same belt.

You would just have to check if such a pulley is made for Contours. Try parts stores, try rockauto.com, autozone.com, even ask a parts person at ford dealer if he has heard of such a pulley for your car. All you need do is remove the compressor and install the delete pulley on the compressor mounting bracket.
Another choice is if contours came with no A/C, you might try a belt for a contour without a/c- sometimes this works, sometimes not, depending if other pulley driven units are mounted in the same place as yours with a/c.

How to bypass the air condtioning


Not really. I am not aware of that model being sold without ac.
So there would not be a belt and idler pulley used in place of the compressor.
The easiest way to fix it is to get a used compressor and put it on. You don't have to charge the ac for the pulley to work.

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.

Do I have to remove the air conditioner compressor on a 1996 buick roadmaster so I can install a air conditioner bypass pulley for serpentine belt?


Yes, the bypass pulley fits into the same area that the compressor will have to be removed from.

If it's for fuel efficiency, some people just remove the wiring/plug from the compressor and tape it to the side so that it won't engage, if the clutch isn't damaged it's the same as using a bypass pulley.

Also, the clutch can be replaced and used instead of the bypass pulley, in the event it is bad, retaining the ability to go back to an A/C system should you ever desire.

Good luck !

My compressor is bad on my 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4, i am wanting to bypass the belt with a new (smaller belt) can u please tell me what size i will need


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

What you are looking for is called an 'air conditioner compressor bypass pulley'. Most chain auto parts stores have them in stock.

All you do is install the bypass pulley and use a shorter belt.

The only downside is the cost of $25-$40. That's about one-third the cost of a remanufactured unit and the labor is compatible.

All the best

Can you drive a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummings Diesel truck around without an air compressor?


no unless you can leave the compressor on the motor without having it hooked up. The air compressor has a pulley that has to be there for serp. belt. unless you can find a belt that will fit bypassing the motor but you still have to use the tensioner!

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
