How to bypass ac pulley on 97 buick skylark 2.2 4cyl


According yo my investigating, the 4 cylinder option on that car was a 2.4L engine. If that is correct, then there is no direct option to bypass the A/C pulley with a shorter belt. However, Autozone has a bypass pulley that can be installed where the A/C compressor is to allow you to drive without A/C. Here is a link to the page....

Can i bypass my ac compressor on a 1999 buick 3.1 with a shorter belt


The short answer is no.
You need the ac pulley to place the belt on the water pump pulley and make the pump pulley turn in the correct direction.
On some models a dummy pulley is available. Otherwise, you would need to get a used compressor that has a working clutch. No freon necessary.

What size serpentine belt to bypass ac compressor?


as there are engine running that have no ac fitted there will be belts to fit your car. Go to an auto parts shop that has a good selection of belts and they will have a catalogue with your belt listed.

Bypass ac compressor with shorter serpentine belt 2001-02 Mercury Sable LS


Because in most cases the routing will not work without the pulley for the compressor being in use. That's why some engines have a dummy pulley available to use in place of the compressor.
Not using the compressor pulley can cause the belt to drive a pulley the wrong direction, or not have the grooved side of the belt on a pulley.

Is it possible to by pass a AC commpressor on a 1996 vw jetta using a shorter belt ? Or just going to the parts store and asking for a belt with no ac ?


Yes you can bypass the ac compressor with a shorter belt, however it may take a few tries to get the right length belt. Even if they have a belt for a non ac Jetta, the belt sometimes isn't the right length.

Can i bypass the ac compressor pulley with out removing compressor?


The only way to bypass the A/C compressor pulley is to use a shorter belt. And you will have to verify that the belt will not bind on anything else. This will be a guessing game as I don't know of any easy way to determine the length of the belt you would need.

94 park avenue ac compressor locked up can i bypass?


there should be a manual bypass to remove the clutch to the compressor otherwise measure the belt and go about 10 inches or shorter (just a hint to get the belt off use the tire iron wrench and push the tension pulley toward the cab of the car the thread is reversed)
