You're going to have to take "seamstress" tape measure (soft tape measure) and manually measure around pulleys if you're going to by pass AC

Replace north star engine belt


I found this picture, it didn't say northstar. The tensioner in picture has a half-inch cut-out. Use a 1/2 rachet or break-over in cut-out, usually the longer the handle, the better. You pull the tensioner one way or the other to get slack in the belt, then remove belt from accessory pulley.

1996. the pulley on the compressor is frozen. will this ruin my serpentine belt?


I wouldn't drive it till you fix it. Sometimes you can get a bypass pulley to use in place of the compressor. Sometimes a different length belt may work?

Serpentine belt broke, and I am told I need a new compressor. We found one but it is from a seville with a northstar engine. Can I use this? Thank you


Hello: All Cadillac Devilles had a Northstar starting in 1996. It will not make any difference if it is a SLS (275 HP) or a STS (300 HP)

Need to know length of serpentine belt to bypass A/C on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee 5.2 L


Take the old belt off. Place a piece of string around the pulleys in the correct routing location. The length of the string is the length of the belt you would need.

What size serpentine belt do you need to bypass a compressor in a 1993 Cadillac Sedan DeVille? it has a 4.9 liter engine .. and is it possibal


You will need what is called an idle pully and be fitted instead of the compressor the same belt will fit. This is the correct way. An alternative way is to take the bely off the compressor pully and leave it on the other pully's pull it hand tignt holding the excess of the belt in your hand. Now check the belt won't rub on the engine or component's. If the belt has fully cleared all then Release the tensioner all the way and measure the length of belt needed to go around all pully's except the compressor. Take the measurement and the old belt to an autofactor's the old belt is important to have because the dimentions of the belt depth and width are also important. They will be able to check for a belt to suit your need's. Belt dosent need to be the exact length of your measurement 1 to 3 inches longer should be adjustable. cheers

Can I bypass the a/c compressor on my 1987 Cadila Sedan Deville


The car did not come without a/c so there isn't anything really available to get around your problem. If you are creative, you can make up a bracket and idler pulley to put in place of the compresor but you will need to experiment with belts to get the correct length.
