Question about AC Cars & Trucks
Nothing I'm on side of the road, cant afford a new ac comp. now will a shorter belt wor? if so please show the routing. THANKS! Stranded
Yes a shorter belt will be ok . mostly the alternator can be used for adjustment. you will have to measure the length with a cord and get a belt to match.

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.

Good news...if you've got the 4 cylinder model, O'Reilly Auto Parts has a belt made by Gates Model #K060806. If you have the 6 cylinder model, it's Gates Model #K060623. I'm guessing you tried AutoZone first...I hate AZ for this reason alone. Anyways, hope this proves useful. Have a great night!

When you go to the Auto parts store and get the part. Tell them you don't have AC and install that belt by passing the AC pulley.
