Can I bypass the a/c compressor on my 1987 Cadila Sedan Deville

Can I bypass the a/c compressor motor on my 1987 Cadilac Sedan Deville? It does not work and I don't use air conditioning in my car so I thought instead of paying to have the seized-up a/c motor replaced I would try to disconect it and use a smaller serpentine belt to bypass the a/c compressor motor. Is this possible? Can I do it myself?

The car did not come without a/c so there isn't anything really available to get around your problem. If you are creative, you can make up a bracket and idler pulley to put in place of the compresor but you will need to experiment with belts to get the correct length.

Im working on a1988 Cadilac deville , replaced ac compressor , accumlator , orfus tube . i also vaccumed the system , reset computer . started car filled with 134a . worked fine till i drove for bout 1mi ....


Your have a low refrigerant level. Econ staying on and service ac will stay on too. Sounds like you didnt put enough r134a in the system. How much r134a did you add? Capacity is 38 ounces(thats
with R12), and a bit less than that for r134a.
