Dear Cherie,
Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
I have done this several times on several vehicles.
Here is the problem.
If you eliminate the pulley for the A/C, (which is actually the clutch for the compressor,) the new path for the serpentine belt may not be without interference from some other part of the engine.
In other words, there might not be a clear path for the belt.
You could take small tape measure and try to see if there is clearance for the new shorter belt.
Stretch the tape measure where the new short belt would be put and see.
You might also check e-bay and see if there is a replacement pulley for the elimination of the compressor.
I just saw that there are replacement pulleys with brackets available for some cars.
To do that, you might have to remove the compressor so that you could install the replacement bracket/pulley combination.
God bless your efforts.

Belt slips off air copndintor


The most common reason is a pulley is not aligned with the rest or is loose on the pivot.

Reroute serpentine belt


Sorry to say about the only way to skip the compressor is when that model came without air cond and I think they all did.
Sometimes you can buy a special pulley with bracket to bypass the compressor after you take it off.
Most of the time if you try to use a shorter belt something will be in the way of the routing, or the belt will drive a pulley the wrong direction.

Aircon does not engage when turned on


the air cond requires the belt on or the pump cannot rotate as the air cond is belt driven on every auto that i know of. now if the belt is slipping it is a cause of one of two things. belt is stretched or not tensioned properly, or the air cond clutch is froze up. when you turn on with no belt the clutch is engaged and you will not be able to turn pump with ease. Install new belt and have air checked for proper freon fill

2003 Jeep Liberty: how to reroute belt without air conditioner


Rerouting with the original belt will not work. You will need a shorter belt and that is something that this site isn't good at - modifications. I would suggest you go to the Jeep forums.com and see if anyone there has also taken off their AC.

Belt on air cond. keeps making noise when you accerate is i the adjustment pully or the air cond.


The A/C and other accessories are run by a "serpentine" belt that is not adjustable. It may be stretched or worn out and needs replacing. I try to use "gatorback" belts when they are available as they seem to grip the best and last the longest.

How do you rerout the belt on a 1994 buick roadmaster estate wagon when not using a c pulley...The ac pulley and clutch has seized up.


You will need to get an idle pully, remove the air con. pump and fit the idle pully in its place. You may be able to reroute the belt but getting a belt to fit will be a problem.
