Yep you can loosen off the the whole compressor unit from the bracket and hold it away from where you'll be working without disconnecting the high or low pressure line...Just be careful and tie the unit in a safe place while you're working...It'll be a good idea to check the holding bolts of the compressor, as well as the bracket,
It may be a bit of a problem getting to the bolts and nuts for the unit though....Once you've removed the bracket you may have to look at the compressor for wear in the holes....If the problem is in that unit you'll not only have to have it re gassed, you'll need the special oil as well....Regards Johngee10

Can i bypass my ac compressor on a 1999 buick 3.1 with a shorter belt


The short answer is no.
You need the ac pulley to place the belt on the water pump pulley and make the pump pulley turn in the correct direction.
On some models a dummy pulley is available. Otherwise, you would need to get a used compressor that has a working clutch. No freon necessary.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

The serpentine belt on my 1984 Buick Lesabre keeps breaking when turn on air conditioner or heater why?


Most likely you have a seized AC compressor. When you ask for AC or heat the AC clutch engages with the pulley wheel that normally spins freely when the AC is off. As the pulley wheel is no longer able to turn because of the seized compressor the belt will either slip or snap.

AC clutch is grinding how do i fix? 1997 buick lesabre


Remove the clutch with a clutch removal tool after removing nut. The pulley for the belt does not need to be removed. The clutch needs to be shimmed with some small thin shims or shim that look like washers to space it out from the pulley. You will not lose freon doing this.

How do you rerout the belt on a 1994 buick roadmaster estate wagon when not using a c pulley...The ac pulley and clutch has seized up.


You will need to get an idle pully, remove the air con. pump and fit the idle pully in its place. You may be able to reroute the belt but getting a belt to fit will be a problem.
