Siezed up a/c compressor


Usually pretty hard to find to get the right one. There might be one that fits your Stratus if a model was produced that had your same engine but without air conditioning. But keep in mind that that other model may have the other belt-driven accessories in a different location on the engine than yours. So the belt may or may not fit.

An alternative is to buy an "A/C Delete Pulley and Bracket" and install that in place of your compressor. It's just a free wheeling pulley set-up, then you can use the same belt without having to find a replacement size. Some company makes them, they probably have an application for the Stratus.

Reroute serpentine belt


Sorry to say about the only way to skip the compressor is when that model came without air cond and I think they all did.
Sometimes you can buy a special pulley with bracket to bypass the compressor after you take it off.
Most of the time if you try to use a shorter belt something will be in the way of the routing, or the belt will drive a pulley the wrong direction.

How to replace altenator?


  • remove the positive wire from the battery
  • disconnect the wires from the back of the altenator
  • remove the drive belt for the altenator, this may be a single belt that connects water pump and air conditioning compressor to the main crankshaft pulley or a seperate belt.
  • remove the alterator and replace with new unit
  • reinstall drive belt and wiring

Can i bypass the air conditioning compresser with a smaller serpentine belt?


No. There is a tensioner pulley which controls the tightness of a serpentine belt. In addition, the belt travels a specific path. Bypassing the air conditioning compressor not only requires a different size belt, it would require rerouting the belt and omitting one component would mess up the travel of the belt and may actually result in reversing the rotation of some of the components that the belt turns. In addition, the belt tensioner is designed specifically for that length and size of belt. You would most likely affect the belt tension, which would result in slippage or overtightness. Overtightness on the bearings of the devices the belt controls will cause that unit to sieze.

Power steering stops when I turn on the air conditioning


YES. or the belt may be slipping. does the a/c work? if the belt is tight and the a/c does not work, then the a/c compressor is trying to sieze and will need replacement. if you dont need the a/c disconnect the wires to it.
