Yes you can bypass the AC compressor with a special pulley that goes where the compressor was. The Factory calls it the "AC Delete" pulley so all engines use the same belt. The pulleys are made by a company called DORAM, contact a local Napa or Carquest auto parts store for ordering information. The pulley is about $30.00

Just additional information on 85 Nissan 300ZX. The belt is breaking almost as soon as it is installed..

My first suspicion when I read this is that your air conditioner pump has seized..... This very quickly burns the belt in two... Either that or your alternator or water pump or power steering pump... You have to find out what doesn't want to turn..

Seized air conditioner compressor

If the compressor is seized, you will know when you turn on the AC, as the belt will shriek like a banshee usually. And yes you can usually just bypass it with a belt for the same model as yours without AC. If there werent any built without AC, you can try another model with the same engine. If all else fails, you can use a small mason's rope to pass through the pulleys without the AC and mesure the length of the rope needed to do so, then count the number of ribs on the original belt. Any good counter parts guy will be able to find you a belt that will fit the measurements as close as possible.

My air conditioner stopped working and I think I need to replace the blower fan but I don't know where it is. I have a 91 Chevy astro. My husband asked me to find out where it is since he is computer...

befor you start replaceing things, if your freeon in the unit gets to low it will not allow the compressor to come on its a saftyso you cant burn the comp. up try putting freon in it first get a can that has a guare on it (around 15.00 at parts store) then see if the freon is just low. but if you know its the blower motor itts located on passenger side in side under the dash take forve box out ands you will see it

Belt broke replaced it now it wont start

Had a similar problem when my air conditioner compressor seized up. I could not believe that this stopped the motor from turning over and after many tries I managed to burn out my starter befor finding the real problem! Remove the belt and check to see if the compressor will move freely.
