Question about Mercury Sable

3 Answers

I currently own a V6 3.0 L Mercury Sable LS. The AC pulley has stopped working entirely as the ac clutch has ground it into the compressor. I need to know the length of a serpintine belt with no ac. I cannot at this time replace the ac clutch nor can I afford to do anything outside of replace the belt. Again I am looking to replace the belt with a shorter belt that bypasses the AC pulley. A diagram that illustrates how to install it plus a size measurement of the belt would be greatly appreciated.

Talk to your automotive supply. My understanding is that a Non-AC belt will run right thru the area where the AC pulley is. You can get a bypass pulley that will allow you to avoid the AC and it's pulley and a specific belt for that setup.

You need to take a "seamstress" tape measure (soft one) and measure around pulleys, excluding AC compressor to accomplish the by-pass you're trying to do.

Can I bypass the ac compressor on my 2004 sable with another size serpentine belt?


Generally yes but a bypass belts is usually only a few bucks cheaper than replacing the compressor with a used one.

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor


I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

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.

The AC Compressor on my 2003 sable is making noise I was told it needs to be replaced.If it does break can I still drive the car.


It depends on how it breaks. If the noise is a rattling bearing or clutch, it will likely throw the belt when it breaks. If the sound is an internal problem, you'll probably be fine driving it. Many part stores carry an a/c delete pulley for this car that will allow you to remove the compressor and put the delete pulley in its' place.

Can a belt be purchased to by-pass the air conditioning pump in a 2000 mercury sable? the pump is bad and I don't want to use the AC anyhow.


no they did not use a different belt, there is a bypass pulley where the AC pump sets now, just order the AC delete
pulley, not very expensive, u will need to remove the old pump. You can also go to the link to buy the pulley you need.

A/C Fan on a 1998 Mercury sable won't come on


It could be low freon and your compressor clutch is not engaging. Have someone turn on the AC while you look at the pulley at the compressor. Low pressure will cause it to "try" to engage or click and then shut down. AC is a "danger" item in self help manuals.

Air conditioning doesn't work. only blows out hot air


Check and see if the clutch on the front of your compressor engages. If not it could have a leak and not have any freon in it. If it has freon then you have an electrical malfunction on the ac system.

Locate wires coming from compressor clutch and trace to nearest plug that you can unplug. Turn on A/C to max cooling. If clutch not engaged (center of compressor drive pulley not spinning with pulley), unplug compressor clutch wires and use multimeter to check voltage going to compressor clutch. If voltage is around 12 volts or more, then clutch should be engaged when plugged in. Plug clutch wires back in (with motor still running and ac set to max). If clutch still not engaged, then clutch definitely bad because 12V signal should engage it.
