Use a tape measure (preferably one used for upholstery soft) and run over pulleys on the same route you want your "bypass" belt to run

I need to bypass the ac compressor on my 2000 mercury grand marques. Is it possible without purchasing a bypass pulley or anything else?


I am going to take a wild guess and assume you are speaking of the serpentine or standard fan belt here. I guess you wish to not repair the ac, because of the cost at this time.
I have been able to bypass that ac pully a few times, but not always.
One way you might try would be to remove the belt that drives the ac compressor, and then take a string or rope and try to wrap it properly over each pulley and see if that is even possible. Some cars will make bypassing that pulley impossible due to the positioning of that compressor.
If you find that there is clear passage for the string or rope, and that all other pulleys will be driven, tightly stretch the string or rope, and then that will be the length of belt you will need to buy.
God bless your attempts.

I have a 1989 chevy 1500 5.7L the ac is broke and I noticed on the diagram on the fan shroud that there is a diagram for a truck without ac can I just use this belt to bypass the ac


Check to see if the AC belt turns anything else, like Power steering, Alternator, Fan, etc. I had a car with defunct AC once, and took its' belt off (the belt was just for AC) with no problems.

Yes there is several ways the diagram for bypass should be under hood on the fan shroud now if not there then the belt should minus diameter of ac fly wheel

Use the same belt as the ac compressor will not work unless you turn it on. Disconnect the wire to the ac pulley clutch and the pulley just becomes an idler and you can get the standard belt anywhere.

The ac compressor is seized .I need to replace belt but I need to bypass the ac pulley.Do i need to buy a bypass pulley?


If the pulley on the compressor will not turn freely, then yes if a bypass pulley exists you would need to use it in place of the compressor.
If the compressor pulley turns but the compressor is locked up, just unplug the compressor clutch.

Belt broke on 2000 chrylser convertible ac compressor froze i need diagram to show how to bypass it


I don't think you can bypass the compressor.
Chrysler would have to build a model without ac and as far as I know they all have ac.
When they do have an engine without ac they usually have an idler pulley to take the place of the compressor.
Re-routing the belt runs the risk of turning the alternator or water pump in the wrong direction.

Seized A/C compressor


The cause of this is that the roller bearing that the AC compressor pulley turns on is frozen up, the bearing can be replaced but you will need to buy the pulley assembly to get the bearing and you will need a special puller to remove the pressed on pulley. As far as finding a proper belt size to bypass the compressor that is nearly impossible to do, you may get the measurements right but in most cases the belt size you need will not be available, When the factory builds a car or truck with "AC Delete" they install a bypass pulley and the same belt is used for both with and without AC. The cost to replace the bearing is low, and that would be the by far the easiest thing to do here. You can buy the AC tool you need online, just google the year and make.

AC pulley bearing is dried up and making noise.


you can get a belt that will fit that car without ac because not all of them have ac installed. Run to your local autozone or local parts store and they will have exactly what you need.

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.
