An easier fix. Check with your local parts store to see if Motormite/Dorman makes an AC Bypass pulley. It goes in place of your compressor and you don't have to change the belt routing.

SOURCE: !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.

SOURCE: is there anyway to bypass the a/c pulley when

I don't know of a practical way to get around this problem. If just the bearing inside of the clutch pulley is bad [which would first be noisy then might lock up and burn off the belt] then you may be able to have just that bearing replaced so your belt will work again. I've replaced several of these bearings over the years...they are pressed in place and do require a bit of skill and a good press to replace. Sometimes though the bearing will go bad and damaged the nose of the compressor badly enough that the only fix is to replace the compressor. The only real way to tell is to examine it all once the clutch pulley has been removed from the compressor. Hope this helps a bit!

Where do all the hoses go from the cooling resivor on a 2000 ford focus with a 2.0L split port engine?where do all the hoses go from the cooling resivor on a 2000 ford focus with a 2.0L split port engine?...


#2 reidk Focus Enthusiast Join Date: Jul 2012 Fan#: 101538 Location: Winnetka, CA What I Drive: 2000 Red Focus SE Wagon Posts: 72 FF Reputation: 1 Buy-Sell-Trade Rating: (0) That leak is coming from the water pump, which in the SPI is behind the timing belt. That plate to which the hoses attach is, in fact, the water pump. You\'re going to have to replace it, and you should (must!) replace the timing belt too since you\'ll have it out anyway. The pulley below the camshaft pulley (top) is the tensioner and doesn\'t need to be removed if it\'s working correctly (turns smoothly). The next pulley down is part of the water pump that you\'ll be removing. The pump is held on with four bolts that you\'ll see after you get the belt off. Since you\'ve already uncovered the timing belt, you\'re about halfway there. I assume that the car is up on stands, you\'ve removed the engine mount and are supporting the engine from below on a jack or stand, and you\'ve got both the upper (metal) and lower (plastic) timing covers off as well as the serpentine belt and its cover (splash guard). If not, do all that. You\'ll also want the steering fluid reservoir and coolant reservoir out of the way. Removing the passenger tire and the inner fender lining can make things easier as well. In general, removing things that are in the way and putting them back later will end up being less hassle than trying to work around them, at least in my experience. From there, the steps are: Drain the coolant (valve at the bottom of the radiator). CLOSE THE VALVE. Remove the crankshaft damper (bottom-most serpentine pulley) to uncover the crankshaft timing pulley. (This step sounds so simple... it\'s just one bolt... hah hah hah...) Rotate the engine until the timing marks on the cam timing pulley and crank timing pulley are at 12 o\'clock (they line up with marks on the engine). Loosen the timing tensioner bolt, rotate the tensioner to slack the belt, and tighten the bolt again, just enough to hold the tensioner off the belt. Remove the belt. Disconnect the hoses and unbolt the pump. Clean the mating surfaces, trying not to get any crap in the engine\'s water passages. Apply a new gasket with sealant, install the new pump, torque the four bolts to spec. Re-attach hoses. Install the new belt, making sure that the timing marks are where you left them. Rotate cam or crank as needed if not. (Removing the sparkplugs makes this easier). Loosen the tensioner bolt to re-tension the belt, then torque the tensioner bolt to spec. If the tensioner doesn\'t turn smoothly, replace it. Check the timing marks again. Put everything else back and torque the crank damper to spec. If you figure out the serpentine routing on the first try, consider yourself very cool. Refill coolant and fire it up.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.

CLICK
on the following LINK. It has several Belt Diagrams, one which will match your specific engine and options (AC/No AC, Power Steering, .etc) that you will need.

Regarding HOW:
Standard Rule to Removal the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See the Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys
.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.

b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right etc.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum ("open") allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. While keeping the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "open" Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
Let me know if this helped...

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.
