You'll need to get a long piece of string. Run the string over all pulleys except the a/c and mark it with a felt tip pen or sharpie. Bypass the a/c pulley directly with the string, making sure it doesn't hit any of the other pulleys or belts. Take that string to your parts house with the old belt - your new belt must be the same width as the old one, with the only difference being the length. They can loop that string around a belt gauge to determine the length needed for the bypass.
Good luck!

I have a 1990 buick lesabre what size belt would I need if I bypass the ac


There is no belt size listed to bypass the pump, non AC and AC equipped cars use the same belt size, in place of the AC compressor they bolt a AC Delete bypass pulley. Many aftermarket companies make these for folks like you, Dorman auto parts manufacturer is one big supplier.

How can you reroute a belt on a 1997 Grand Marquis LS bypassing the AC compressor


If you search the web you can find bypass pulleys made by DORMAN parts, as far as the belt goes there is but one for each engine, AC or not. You can buy the "AC delete" bypass pulley from the dealer in some cases as well, but due to the age of your car it is doubtful they will be able to get it.

Can i bypass the air conditioning compresser with a smaller serpentine belt?


No. There is a tensioner pulley which controls the tightness of a serpentine belt. In addition, the belt travels a specific path. Bypassing the air conditioning compressor not only requires a different size belt, it would require rerouting the belt and omitting one component would mess up the travel of the belt and may actually result in reversing the rotation of some of the components that the belt turns. In addition, the belt tensioner is designed specifically for that length and size of belt. You would most likely affect the belt tension, which would result in slippage or overtightness. Overtightness on the bearings of the devices the belt controls will cause that unit to sieze.

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.
