You can buy an A/C bypass pulley from an O'reilly auto or anyone that supplies Dorman parts. the pulleys are cheap and allow you to mount things and use the stock serp belt. You will have no AC ,though. The kit is designed with the intent of eliminaing the compressor, which is very expensive to replace.

hi you can bypass the compresor. they may have a belt for that truck without a ac compresor . or use a peice of string and wrap around all pullys in proper order.and then measure the string and subtract 1-1 1/2 inches and bring to parts store and get 2-3 belts as close as possable and return the ones you dont use.

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....

I have a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue and I need to bypass my ac compressor with my serpentine belt, does anybody know what size belt I need?


Laurie, why bypass the compressor? - even if it is frozen, as long as the AC clutch is not activated there will not be an issue. To be safe just disconnect the wire powering the AC clutch.

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.

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor


I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

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.

The A/C compressor clutch on my 2001 Dodge RAM 1500 pickup disintegrated and now the serpentine belt won't stay on. How can I bypass this? I measured the path over the pulleys, routing around the A/C...


I would see if there is a belt specified for your car, with your engine size, etc., but without A/C. Buy that belt, and find a description of the belt path far that model.

You might be able to bypass the A/C compressor that way.

Of course, the best idea is to get the compressor repaired...

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.
