It has two V belts ,and itys not difficult to do but the biggest problem is the compressor its its a kinsin or something similar and no spares are available ,it has two snail shells inside not pistons and this is the problem the thinest edge breaks up so i would advise you to remove the restrictor valve block and give it a good blow with airline as the bits get everywhere inside ,The cost of a new compressor is around 900euros plus tax and i tried to get a recon unit even the internet but drew a blank so it was dealer only.In the end the customer decided it was easier to trade vehicle in for a new one than pay all that money out on an old car .

1998 honda accord 3.0. compressor clutch is engaged, pressures are normal and get 60f at ac vents. Needs some ideas

60f is 15 c which is good for a vehicle ac unit
the lowest setting approaches 12 c and that is for an ac in excellent condition
you can help by closing the external vent so that the cabin air gets colder by recirculation
clean the fins of the evaporator under the dash,
tint the car windows all round except the windscreen
if you have climate control shut off the heater operation as well

Can I run the serpentine belt on a 1998 Honda Passport without the AC because the plate on the front of the compressor is a rattling and the compressor does not work?

you can. try the auto parts store to see if they list one without A/C. if they don`t then its trial and error to get one that will work.

What other Honda A/C Compressor is interchangeable with a 2002 CRV

Honda use generic ac compressors with a Honda badge on it. Go to an accredited ac specialist shop and they will have a catalogue of compressors that will replace the current unit. Probably will be 1/2 price of a Honda spare part.

My ac compressor is locked up on my 1998 honda acorrd 4 cyclinder and I want 2 bypass the compressor. Is there a smaller belt, or a kit I can buy??

AutoZone has a bypass pully for ~$40:

You could also remove the belt, take a piece of string and measure around the remaining pulleys, tying off the string. Then take that string down to an autoparts store with the belt and get one that matches the width and ribs of the belt and the circumference of the string. You should be able to tension it up to the exact fit. However, make sure the belt in its new configuration isn't going to run into anything on the engine.

Hi, may I know crankshaft pulley having a bush intact?mine was 98' accord sv4, it was a noise appear when air cond. compressor engaged, i thought it was compressor noise, but aircond mechanic told me it...

you do not mention the type of noise rattle , squeal , rumble , grinding so any answer is a guess
the only noise from a crankshaft pulley would be a squeal/scream from a failed harmonic balance rubber insert
when the ac compressor is engaged the extra load on the pulley would make it slip on the rubber
however as the ac compressor would not be driving long before the crank pulley came apart I suspect that the mechanic was not experienced enough to advise correctly
suggest that you get a second opinion from an accredited professional ac specialist

Air conditioner was making a noise,smoke then came out from hood. Now I have a rattling noise

The ac compressor is shot,it has locked up,replacement of the compressor and it`s components is a must to repair the ac system,dryer,and expansion valve will have to be replaced,and the system flushed out to prevent the new system from being contaminated .If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

98 accord ac not blowing at all

This is very vague. Is the blower motor working (can you hear blowing inside?), is it blowing but it's hot? Can you hear the compressor running (open your hood and listen if something is kicking on and off). AC is so complex. It could be as simple as a freon leak or as complex as a compressor, hose, accumulator etc.
