Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
My AC compressor pully is frozen, resulting in my belt breaking. Is there a way to bypass the pully or to they bake a bypass pully for this make/model?
SOURCE: the pully on the compressor
Yes. there are basically three ways:
1. Put in a new a/c compressor.
2. Try a smaller serpentine belt. If this model came also w/o a/c, that serpentine belt should work fine. If all Santa Fes came with a/c then like you were saying try a smaller belt. You might have to try different smaller belt sizes(as far as I know) until you really get it right, which is not easy.
3. See if they make an a/c compressor delete pully for your particular model. This is basically just a single standalone pully (dummy pully). Aftermarket companies do not make them for all models, but if they make it for yours, you can use the same serpentine belt w/o a compressor. The internet is the best place to check.
