Hello newf_girl...Yes you can do this on the 3.0 litre taurus. Several aftermarket bypass pulleys are available. Some require the removal of the compressor, others let you unbolt and move it to the side. The pulley bolts in place of the Air Conditioning Compressor, allowing you to use the factory size serpentine belt. They sell for about 40 dollars at 1A Auto online. Here is one that will fit your taurus....
Part Number: 1AEPM00006
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Napa came out with some by-pass pully kits. I'm not sure if taurus is one though. Is ac clutch bad, or compressor?

Can you by pass the ac on a f 150 2001


If there is not a problem with the ac pulley bearing then to immobilise the ac compressor just disconnect the power wire to the ac clutch. The pulley then just becomes an idler pulley and the system is by passed

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 need a serpentine belt routing diagram to eliminate A/C compressor that is bad. The vehicle is a 2003 Ford Taurus with DOHC V6


A company named MOTORMITE makes a pulley assembly (by-pass kit) just for this purpose. You simply remove the compressor and the pulley bolts in where the compressor was. This way, you can use the same belt and belt routing as the original. (see picture)

The part number for this by-pass kit is 34166
It is available at AutoZone and other parts retailers for around $40.

My compressor is bad and i was wanting to bypass the compressor with a smaller belt, what size belt do i need to get


There's probably no way to find a serpentine belt to by-pass the A/C compressor. However, the compressor only spins when the compressor clutch is engaged, and if you unplug the clutch the compressor pulley spins freely on its bearing without turning the compressor. The clutch wiring connector is usually on the compressor near the pulley.

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.

CAN THE SERPENTINE BELT BE REROUTED TO BYPASS THE A/C COMPRESSOR?


No. The bearing on the compressor can be replaced without buying an entire compressor.

Is it ok to drive 2004honda accord without the a/c compressor?


I am assuming that the a/c compressor was removed? Yes, you can drive any vehicle without the a/c compressor. If the engine has one serpentine belt, as long as you can do one of two things...able to purchase a shorter belt (most cases you can, as not all cars have a/c compressor) or replace the a/c compressor with what is known as a by-pass pulley. My 1996 Buick Regal a/c compressor locked up, so I installed the by-pass pulley. Basically, the answer to your question is yes.
