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.

Use the same belt as the ac compressor will not work unless you turn it on. Disconnect the wire to the ac pulley clutch and the pulley just becomes an idler and you can get the standard belt anywhere.

Can i use a smaller serpentine belt if i bypass the air conditioning unit?


In some cases this can be done-but you do not mention the engine you have-also, there are bypass pullleys that some sellers have for just such circumstances, google bypass pulleys for your engine-you sometimes can do this yourself if you keep in mind the rotation of all pulleys has to remain the same,

I have a Mazda Tribute 2001. The Air conditioning all the sudden stopped working. In several occasions if we left the AC on for too long we heard a loud noise coming from the belts. Can it be a fuse or...


It sounds like your air conditioning compressor or air conditioning clutches have gone bad the solution is to have rebuilt (or buy a rebuilt)air conditioning compressor. Do not attempt to work on thr compressor yourself unless you are certified in air conditioning, gas in system can kill you if you breeth it in.

How can install a serpentine belt on my 92 ford mustang,but i dont have a air conditioner unit


You need to get the belt that is for your car without air conditioning. The belt designed for a car with air conditioning will always be too long. You can't cut it or shorten it. You need the other belt.

Bypassing air compressor in a chevy 95 g20 van


Well if you're trying to bypass the air conditioning compressor, your original serpentine belt will obviously not work as it will be too long. Installing another pulley would really be more work that it's worth and likely cost a fair amount since you'd have to have a custom bracket made, or a mount to fit in place of the compressor. Your best bet would be to have your local parts supply look up the belt for the same make, model, year and engine specs as your vehicle but without Air Conditioning. The g20 uses all the same mounting locations for other belt driven accessories regardless of the presence of an AC compressor. Therefore, the belt should fit just fine. Also, you should spot on the belt routing diagram under the hood that it shows the optional routing for a belt without AC. (It does on mine anyway) Good luck and let me know how it goes.
