Yes it is called A/C Compressor Bypass Pulley. It bolts directly to the AC Compressor bracket.

Bypass serpentine bell 2000 Ford Expedition 5.4 l


I am assuming you want a belt that provides a bypass for the A/C pulley. Unfortunately, newer vehicles don't give you the option of getting A/C anymore like in the old days. Used to be you went to the auto parts store and just asked for one w/o A/C and got it. Some later models did offer no A/C, but put idler pulleys in place to keep the same belt length. If there is no second option for a belt, you will need to get real creative if you want to bypass anything. It is important that you ensure that any bypass belt you install doesn't cause a change in the rotational direction of any of the critical pulleys (water pump, power steering, alternator). Some folks just buy a junk A/C compressor from a salvage yard that has a good pulley bearing, mount it but don't power it up or charge it.

Can a faulty ac compressor cause the engine to lock up and the belt to break. the engine runs fine but the ac compressor pulley is locked causing the pulley to be very hot. also causes the belt to hea


yeah, because the one belt runs everything now. Used to have two belts and now it's a serpentine and ribbed to make it fit right.. If you think need to find out just ask a repairman who works on them.

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.

At Auto Zone, ask for part number 34223. It is a bypass pulley that you can replace the a/c compressor with so you can use the original belt without issue.

My compressor is bad on my 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4, i am wanting to bypass the belt with a new (smaller belt) can u please tell me what size i will need


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

What you are looking for is called an 'air conditioner compressor bypass pulley'. Most chain auto parts stores have them in stock.

All you do is install the bypass pulley and use a shorter belt.

The only downside is the cost of $25-$40. That's about one-third the cost of a remanufactured unit and the labor is compatible.

All the best

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.

My air conditoning compressor is making a grinding noise and it hasn't worked for years. Is there a way to change the pully on the water pump and just put a new serpantine belt on to bypass the compressor?


What engine?

They make a pulley adapter to install in the place of the a/c compressor for vehicles that the a/c con not be bypassed. You local auto parts store will have them. Sometimes they cause more problems than they solve.

The best solution is to replace the compressor with a new or even a used compressor.
