First you will have to remove the comppressor most likely to get it out of the way of the new routing pattern.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.

Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

Can you by pass a air conditioner conpresser in a 2005 Chrysler pacifica

the ac compressor pulley runs on it's own bearings and if you disconnect the electrics to the clutch the pulley will just be an idler and you won't need to change the belt

Seized air conditioner compressor

If the compressor is seized, you will know when you turn on the AC, as the belt will shriek like a banshee usually. And yes you can usually just bypass it with a belt for the same model as yours without AC. If there werent any built without AC, you can try another model with the same engine. If all else fails, you can use a small mason's rope to pass through the pulleys without the AC and mesure the length of the rope needed to do so, then count the number of ribs on the original belt. Any good counter parts guy will be able to find you a belt that will fit the measurements as close as possible.

Serpintine belt

if the ac is not working then if you leave it switched off there will be no need to get a special belt to by-pass it. The pulley on the ac compressor is just an idler pulley that only turns the compressor when there is current to the clutch in the pulley. IF you never use the ac the pulley just spins . The problem with special belts is if they fail (and they do ) it will be where/ when you cannot get a special belt but you will always get a proper belt from any spares store or garage.

I want to by pass my air conditioner compressor on a 1997 Z-28, is there a serpinetine belt made to do this?

Usually doing what you want to do has problems down the road, a serpentine belt around the AC is not costing much, in terms of horsepower robbing. It is an idler when not engauged.

Is there any way to by pass the air conditioner on a 1991 chevy truck? Mine seized up this morning and don't want to burn off my belt.

Yes you can bypass the AC compressor with a special pulley that goes where the compressor was. The Factory calls it the "AC Delete" pulley so all engines use the same belt. The pulleys are made by a company called DORAM, contact a local Napa or Carquest auto parts store for ordering information. The pulley is about $30.00

Air conditioner compressor locked up and broke Serpintine belt. How can I reroute a belt to avoid the compressor? Will I need to remove the compressor?

Hi Friend:

To avoid the Expense of Replacement of A/C Compressor, DOORMAN Company Has a By-PASS PULLEY that you can Use To eliminate the Compressor Completely.

Just call some of your Local Auto Parts Stores and Be sure to Tell them that =DOORMAN is the Co. That makes this By Pass Pulley.

I'm Sure you'll find it.

If the air conditioner blow warm air,

1. Open the hood and check the fan belt first, sometime the fan belt broke caused the compressor stop to work, if the fan belt is good, check the compressor see if the center part turns, if turns, that means the compressor is o.k.

2. If both work fine, check the air conditioner small window see if there is bubble, if you see some bubbles in the small round window, that’s means your air conditioner lack
R-22 Freon.

3. before you fill up the Freon, check the leaking, if leaks, fix it and then fill up the Freon, the best way is to ask some professional auto air conditioner repair shop to help you.

Hope this can help you.
