What size belt do I need to bypass ac compressor on a 2005 pt cruiser?


Use a bit of string or rope to run around all the pulleys without the air con compressor and mark the rope. Measure the length. Most V and flat belts are marked with their size, which is their length in cm. Remember that the compressor pulley may put an angle or bend on the belt for it to run properly and be tensioned properly. If you bypass this, there may be nothing to tighten the belt, or the tensioner may not work as well. You will soon find out if the belt slips, it will squeal like mad.

Can I bypass the air system to fill air manually


On the Mark VII, they came with an emergency fill schrader(like a tire valve) valve on the compressor head. To use this, simply apply compressed air to the Schrader valve WHILE THE PUMP IS RUNNING. The reason I say while the pump is on, is because if the compressor is on, the solenoids on the front or rear WILL be open, thus allowing air into the air spring(bag).

How to turn off air compressor on 1999 ford expedition


  • Under the hood in the relay panel will be a relay for the compressor. When you locate the relay box look on the underside of the lid for the legend (layout) of the relays. Pulling that relay will stop the compressor from turning on.
  • You can also just unhook the connector on the compressor and secure it to stop the compressor from turning on.
  • If you need the compressor clutch to not turn at all, like if the bearings are bad, then you need to buy a smaller belt to bypass the compressor all together.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...


If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

Bypass ac compressor 2006 dodge ram 3500 5.9 L diesel I need to bypass stuck ac compressor


Hi:
The easiest method to do this is to go to an auto parts store and buy a belt designed for a truck with no air conditioning. The belt will be the right size, and you just install it as normal, and bypass the compressor

Air con disconected


If the air compressor is bad... check the diagram under the hood for the serpentine belt. Most vehicles will have a diagram that displays the serpentine belt path along with a part number for a shorter belt to bypass the ac compressor. If you can't find the diagram, go to your local parts store and they should be able to help.
