I had problems with my compressor on my 95 3.4. It squealed like hell until the pulley warmed up. So, for the winter months took the compressor out and bought an ac bypass pully from advance auto parts. It was only like 25 bucks and worked fine. Didn't notice any difference in performance for the couple of months that the compressor was out.

Usually doing what you want to do has problems down the road, a serpentine belt around the AC is not costing much, in terms of horsepower robbing. It is an idler when not engauged.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.


Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

Can you by pass a air conditioner conpresser in a 2005 Chrysler pacifica


the ac compressor pulley runs on it's own bearings and if you disconnect the electrics to the clutch the pulley will just be an idler and you won't need to change the belt

Seized air conditioner compressor


If the compressor is seized, you will know when you turn on the AC, as the belt will shriek like a banshee usually. And yes you can usually just bypass it with a belt for the same model as yours without AC. If there werent any built without AC, you can try another model with the same engine. If all else fails, you can use a small mason's rope to pass through the pulleys without the AC and mesure the length of the rope needed to do so, then count the number of ribs on the original belt. Any good counter parts guy will be able to find you a belt that will fit the measurements as close as possible.

Serpintine belt


if the ac is not working then if you leave it switched off there will be no need to get a special belt to by-pass it. The pulley on the ac compressor is just an idler pulley that only turns the compressor when there is current to the clutch in the pulley. IF you never use the ac the pulley just spins . The problem with special belts is if they fail (and they do ) it will be where/ when you cannot get a special belt but you will always get a proper belt from any spares store or garage.

I need a belt to bypass the air conditioner compressor in a 1996 nissan maxima


I hope I understand this correctly. Here are some belt part numbers that will By-pass the AC. Check out Bosch part number 6PK890, which is 890mm effective length. If you have a Napa close to you, their part number 25-060355.

Air conditioner compressor locked up and broke Serpintine belt. How can I reroute a belt to avoid the compressor? Will I need to remove the compressor?


Hi Friend:

To avoid the Expense of Replacement of A/C Compressor, DOORMAN Company Has a By-PASS PULLEY that you can Use To eliminate the Compressor Completely.

Just call some of your Local Auto Parts Stores and Be sure to Tell them that =DOORMAN is the Co. That makes this By Pass Pulley.

I'm Sure you'll find it.

Air conditioner


The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.
