Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.
I'm afraid I must recommend some professional help with this one. Or maybe a mechanic friend.
There's so many things..... For example the 134a (freon) may have leaked causing the Low Pressure Cut Out Switch, (in the hose under the hood) to keep the compressor off so as to not burn it up.
Could be a fuse or relay. Could be the switch controll on the dash... See what I mean?
Sorry but in my opinion you'll have to bite the bullet and pay the piper. Cheaper in the long run, though. You can replace many things before you luck onto the problem part.
THE ACCUMULATOR OR DRYER.YOU HAVE TO PUT 1 OUNCE OF REFRIGERANT OIL IN IT.THE COMPRESSOR HAS SHIPPING OIL IN IT.IT HAS TO BE REPLACED.SO YOU TAKE NEW COMPRESSOR POUR OUT THE SHIPPING OIL IN IT.AND PUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF NEW REFRIGERANT IN COMPRESSOR.GO TO GARAGE OR AUTO PARTS PLACE.TO CHECK TO SEE HOW MUCH OIL COMPRESSOR HOLD TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.
you might check the fuse box & relays. and the ac shouldn't cost quite that much if you buy the part yourself. if you tell me what year, model, and engine i can look up part # and cost for you. the labor shouldn't cost more than $300 if you bring your own compressor.
Some 2001-2002 models had serious problem from factory and typically fail within the first 50K-75K miles (but don't bother calling, Suzuki will not do anything about it). The Nippon-Denso compressors used those years occasionally had aluminum chips left over from manufacturing process. Usually the chips get cleaned out before installation into the car but not always. ONLY cure is to replace all components: compressor, both condensers (front and rear), both expansion valves (front and rear), and dryer. AND, before any new components installed, ALL lines must be flushed clean and blown (sucked?) dry. Since the compressors alone are $1200 (from dealer) and total job can run upwards of $2500, you don't want to do this too often. Get it done right the first time!! We did and it's been fine since then.
You may have a leak. At higher rpm's a/c compressor works better, that at idle, because it turns alot faster. Your level of R134 may be low in a/c system. Have garage check, how much R134 a you have in there.
