Your going to have to install that belt and find out how much smaller you need it, then the parts store can lookm it up and give you the right belt, the stock belt size is 85.892 inches.see how much less you need,you dont have to be exact because it has the tensioner, with the belt on you will be able to see how much smaller and subtract it for the size i gave you,heres a napa belt # this is 1 1/2 inches smaller #25060840, heres one 6in smaller #25060790,just see how much smaller they will find the right belt, also they sell a bracket with a pulley that takes the place of the compressor but if you can bypass it then do so. hope this helps.

Can I use a short serpentine belt. AC compressor isn't working.


I have a 2000 E430. I just did this job because my ac compressor froze. I went to O'reilly and bought a serpentine belt 6pk2310.(different brand has it as k0910). The numbers after the part number is the length in mm or inches. Eg. 0910 = 91 inches == 2810mm. Just follow the diagram and bypass the ac compressor. Tools: 15mm wrench for the pulley tensioner. It took me 5 minutes to do this job and be on the road again. It is very easy.
On the Right is the normal diagram.

On the left is how you bypass the AC compressor on a E320/E430 2000-2002 engine.

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.

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.

I got a 97 cavalier the comprssor is shot and i weant to take out the compressor and find a shorter belt what size belt do i need


I would just leave things the way they are

Why spend time & money when you don't
have to

You don't just change the belt,thus the added expense

You need a bypass kit to replace the compressor

Check online or at parts store to research that

The car is 16 years old ,save your money & buy a
code reader for OBD2 or some tools to work on
your car,they always need updating

I currently own a V6 3.0 L Mercury Sable LS. The AC pulley has stopped working entirely as the ac clutch has ground it into the compressor. I need to know the length of a serpintine belt with no ac. I...


Talk to your automotive supply. My understanding is that a Non-AC belt will run right thru the area where the AC pulley is. You can get a bypass pulley that will allow you to avoid the AC and it's pulley and a specific belt for that setup.

94 park avenue ac compressor locked up can i bypass?


there should be a manual bypass to remove the clutch to the compressor otherwise measure the belt and go about 10 inches or shorter (just a hint to get the belt off use the tire iron wrench and push the tension pulley toward the cab of the car the thread is reversed)

By-passing the a/c compressor with a shorter belt


The best way to do this is first ask the parts house to see if this car came with out air and get a belt that way. I dont think that year had the option of not havnig A/C. The other way is take a piece of rope and put it around the pullys just like you are puttin on the belt but by pass the A/C you might have to make a few trips or get a few different size belts but its the only way
