Sometimes there is a bracket and pulley that replaces the compressor and you use the same belt. check at your auto parts store.

There is a company that makes a pulley and bracket that replaces the compressor. I can't remember where I saw it online but you can do some research and find them. If you attempt to go with the shorter belt, you will need to see if there was a non-A/C version of your engine and use that system...problem with most vehicles is that a/c has gone from being an option to being standard...in doing this, pump removal generally causes the new belt to interfere with other items and can give you a real headache trying to overcome that. Other option if you are good with metal work and welding is to find an idler pulley and make a bracket for it to mount in place of the a/c compressor, or find a compressor that is internally failed with a good clutch and install it and just not make the electrical connections.

Just in case:
If the a/c compressor pulley still spins...
The pulley is idling anyway and not consuming measureable power. Disconnect the clutch wire at the compressor.
It wil spin freely like an idle pulley.

This may save you a few bucks....

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.

A/c condenser bypass


The AC condenser does not run on a serpentine belt. if you mean the AC compressor, the answer is yes, but there is a special pulley you need to buy to replace the compressor. You can buy it at autozone or online. It is Dorman part number 34166

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.

1997 chevy blazer,serpentine belt making noise. belt dressing doesn't seem to help,sometimes it makes the noise louder.and then after driving for a good while the noise stops.; it starts again whe i...


May be a worn belt or a pulley whose bearings are shot. Remove belt and check it for the ribs having broken down or missing parts of belt. While it's off, check all your pulleys for turning freely, alternator, tensioner pulley, a/c compressor, PS pulley...If you hear any noise when spinning them, or feel any movement like wobbling, or if they have a rough feel, then its likely that pulley needs replacing.

!991 Olds 88...can I replace with a shorter serpentine belt?


Unplug wires going to the compressor, and let it freewheel, if it's not noisy in that mode. A/C compressor won't kick in if not connected. A lot less hassle than going the other way.

More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.
