2001 impala 3.8 liter belt size to bypass AC unit


You can also remove the a/c compressor and install a bypass pulley in its place. You can still use the standard belt this way, just run it to the bypass pulley instead of the a/c compressor. RockAuto has them at the link.

I need a drive belt to bypass the a/c on a 2006 chrysler sebring 2.4 engene


The a/c compressor can not be bypassed on this engine. The compressor will either need to be replaced or removed and a special bypass pulley installed in its place. The pulleys if available can be purchased from you local auto parts store.

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.

Tried to replace my ac pully with a bypass pully removed all the bolts and I still can't get it budge to remove it.. I say for an hour trying but no luck help?


If you are installing a bypass pulley it will eliminate the A/C compressor thus eliminating your A/C. With that being said, you need to evacuate the system. (If there is anything in it), Remove the whole A/C compressor from the car and then install the bypass pulley where the compressor would mount to the engine. If you are trying to remove the pulley on the A/C compressor to replace it then you will need a special tool (A/C Clutch Pulley Puller) that is usually available at most auto parts store on the "Loan a Tool" programs.

The ac compressor is seized .I need to replace belt but I need to bypass the ac pulley.Do i need to buy a bypass pulley?


If the pulley on the compressor will not turn freely, then yes if a bypass pulley exists you would need to use it in place of the compressor.
If the compressor pulley turns but the compressor is locked up, just unplug the compressor clutch.

Do I have to remove the air conditioner compressor on a 1996 buick roadmaster so I can install a air conditioner bypass pulley for serpentine belt?


Yes, the bypass pulley fits into the same area that the compressor will have to be removed from.

If it's for fuel efficiency, some people just remove the wiring/plug from the compressor and tape it to the side so that it won't engage, if the clutch isn't damaged it's the same as using a bypass pulley.

Also, the clutch can be replaced and used instead of the bypass pulley, in the event it is bad, retaining the ability to go back to an A/C system should you ever desire.

Good luck !
