Yes it is very possible you will have to go to an auto store and find the right size belt ask them if there is a model of that car without the belt if not they can find you the right belt

If at all possible does anyone know what size belt I would need to bypass the Ac compressor pulley until I save up enough money for the parts and labor to get it fixed in a 2003 Lincoln aviator


Since they weren't sold without ac that info isn't available. You are going to have to measure it. Remember that the tensioner is going to put pressure on it so you need to account t for that. If the old belt is still on it i would use a piece of twine or fishing line and run it just like the belt is but bypassing the ac. The measure it. Be careful not to stretch the string.

I have a 2007 impala lt 3.5l which the ac compressor is locked up and i need to bypass this. what is the best way to route the belt and how long should it be


I don't know of any way to by-pass the A/C compressor or any component in a serpentine belt system; but, you can unplug the compressor clutch (at the nose of the compressor, behind the pulley), then the compressor will not turn and the pulley just acts as an idler.

Does the A/C compressor on a 2003 Suburban 6 ltr operate off the serpentine belt or from a separate one.


Hello: It has a smaller serpentine belt behind the larger belt. It also has its own tensioner (these often failed) To replace the belt for the compressor the other belt has to be removed first.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...


If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

My ac compressor is squealing. is there a cheap solution to this, can i put a smaller belt on and by pass the compressor?


It could be the belt, but also be the bearings squealing, it will lock the compressor down and snap that belt. But you can bypass the compressor with a smaller belt.

1993 buick century ac by pass


If the comprtessor itself is bad, you can unplug the activation wire located up fron of the unit, this will allow the clutch bearing to turn separate of the compressor. If the clutch bearing is the cause you will have a problem, these belt systems are so crazy that it would be almost impossible to select a belt to do what you want.
