Yes you can get smaller belt but you have to try different sizes for a better fit.

My ac compressor is locked up on my 1998 honda acorrd 4 cyclinder and I want 2 bypass the compressor. Is there a smaller belt, or a kit I can buy??


AutoZone has a bypass pully for ~$40: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/1998-Honda-Accord-DX/A-C-Compressor-Bypass-Pulley/_/N-jajs5Z91tb7.

You could also remove the belt, take a piece of string and measure around the remaining pulleys, tying off the string. Then take that string down to an autoparts store with the belt and get one that matches the width and ribs of the belt and the circumference of the string. You should be able to tension it up to the exact fit. However, make sure the belt in its new configuration isn't going to run into anything on the engine.

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,

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

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...


If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

My ac compressor is squealing. is there a cheap solution to this, can i put a smaller belt on and by pass the 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.

Just had this exact same problem with my car. Sears Automotive said that it may just be simpler to get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor. Talked to someone at another store and they suggested the same thing instead of spending a ton of money to replace the compressor. So in short, yes and that is confirmed by two mechanics.
