Hi, yes this should be fine, all you need to make sure is that the belt is driving the pulleys all the same way round, alot of people do this and as its only the air con it wont make any difference to how the car drives, just make sure you write down the way the belt turns the pulleys then run the new pulley the same way but bypassing the ac, then as long as they all turn the same way you will have no problems what so ever.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

Plus if you ask at the car spares shop they may do a belt for your car for a model without ac the engine will be exactly the same its just the belt will be shorter so try asking for that before you try matching belts up

Is there a way to bypass the ac compressor when it locks up for a 04 Chevrolet Malibu classic with a 2.2 engine


I don't know if that vehicle with that engine fitted was sold without air conditioning.

If there was a no aircon version for that engine then you should be able to fit a serpentine belt which has been designed to fit the pulleys on that engine with no aircon compressor. This would work as long as the aircon pulley was well clear of the new belt when fitted.

If you go into the local chev parts dealer they can look up the belt routing diagrams of that engine with and without the aircon and it should be clear from that if you can just fit the shorter belt to your engine and by pass the aircon pulley. They will verify for you that it will fit and supply you with the correct belt. Pretty basic I think.

What drive belt do I use on my 05 vx sv6 if I remove the aircon unit


if the pulley on the ac is still good ( bearing ok) then pull the ac fuse for the compressor and use the standard belt
the pulley for the compressor just becomes an idler
the other way is to use a tape measure around all the pulleys and idlers and the measurement will be a starting point for the length of the belt
go to a service dealer spares, and see if there is a listing for a belt for a vehicle that doesn't have ac

there are numerous examples of fords with out ac but to be precise you will have to give the year and engine type. Quicker if you contact that ford dealer with this information as the spare parts department will have a belt if it is applicable. Remember that if the ac pulley is still free to turn then all you have to do is disconnect the wire to the compressor clutch behind the pulley and it becomes just an idler pulley

Ive got an alternator belt on a 1978 mercedes 450sl and the belt needs to go on the inside pully whats the easiest way. wrayturner@comcast.net


The only way to replace an alternator drive belt that is on an inside pulley is to remove the outer belts before the inner one can be fitted.
To fit inner belt, loosen the adjusting clamp and mounting bolts on the units that tension the outer belts such as the aircon compressor and power steering units and moove them to loosen the belts and then remove these belts. Once these belts are off, check them for wear and cracking of the rubber on the inside surface and if suspect it would pay to replace them as well. Loosen clamp and mounting bolts on the alternator, if not already done so, and moove alternator so that alternator belt can be fitted.
Retension alternator belt and tighten clsmping and mounting bolts Refit other belts in turn and tension and tighten clamping and mounting bolts.
Correct tension is when belt is pushed on the longest run between pulleys with a 10 Kg force. Belt should deflect a maximum of 8 mm.

There is a company that makes a pulley and bracket that replaces the compressor. I can't remember where I saw it online but you can do some research and find them. If you attempt to go with the shorter belt, you will need to see if there was a non-A/C version of your engine and use that system...problem with most vehicles is that a/c has gone from being an option to being standard...in doing this, pump removal generally causes the new belt to interfere with other items and can give you a real headache trying to overcome that. Other option if you are good with metal work and welding is to find an idler pulley and make a bracket for it to mount in place of the a/c compressor, or find a compressor that is internally failed with a good clutch and install it and just not make the electrical connections.

I think there is air trapped in the radiator. Remove the level semsor in on the radiator and make sure you fill the water from there first, fit it back and then remove the expansion tank and hold it higher in the air and make sure youget clear running water at the air bleeders. Cheers.
