There is a site called monster auto parts. com they sell a bypass pulley that you replace your ac compressor with. it's about 35 dollars, but you may find one. less shipping charges locally where you live at an auto parts store. good luck!

Is there a diagram that could show me how to bypass my ac comp pulley using a smaller belt instead of buying a bypass pulley


Only a few cars out there that you can just slap on a smaller belt. If it calls for the compressor or pulley, then you'll need to get one or the other. You can check. Take a string and run it to the pulleys that the smaller belt would go. See if it is going to hit a bracket.

93 cutlass supreme 3.4 dohc how to replace AC compressor


It isnt hard to replace, but, it is illegal to vent refrigerent into the atmosphere(If theres any in the system?!), also you would needs a few "special" tools(vacuum pump, and a/c manifold gauge set to recharge the system! A shorter belt is always available, But, depending how the belt is supposed to be run, you may not be able to go that route! You could try searching for "ac bypass pulley" if you dont want to keep the ac working!(alot cheaper than buying an ac compressor!

Hi I need to replace the serpentine belt on Hyundai tucson (2004) the problem is the air con pulls seems to have siezed, can I get a smaller belt as I don't really need air con in scotland. Cheers


my autodata belt book shows 18 hyundai belt set ups 1992 to2012 and only one that runs a special belt for the ac
for all the rest the ac pulley is required as the belt runs around it to drive power steering, alternator , water pump
test the ac pulley by removing the belt( after drawing a diagram of how it runs ) and trying to spin the pulley
if it is as you say have a mobile mechanic/ ac mechanic come and remove the pulley and replace the bearing ( about 1 1/2 hour and $20.00 for the bearing
if the pulley spins then disconnect the wire to the compressor so that the clutch is not engaged for the compressor

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

Bypass ac compressor with shorter serpentine belt 2001-02 Mercury Sable LS


Because in most cases the routing will not work without the pulley for the compressor being in use. That's why some engines have a dummy pulley available to use in place of the compressor.
Not using the compressor pulley can cause the belt to drive a pulley the wrong direction, or not have the grooved side of the belt on a pulley.

Just had this exact same problem with my car. Sears Automotive said that it may just be simpler to get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor. Talked to someone at another store and they suggested the same thing instead of spending a ton of money to replace the compressor. So in short, yes and that is confirmed by two mechanics.
