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.
I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.
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.
If you have a separate belt driving the ac compressor then leave the belt of. IF it has to go around the ac pulley then disconnect the power lead at the pulley clutch and again no problems as the ac pullet becomes an idler.
Not really. I am not aware of that model being sold without ac. So there would not be a belt and idler pulley used in place of the compressor. The easiest way to fix it is to get a used compressor and put it on. You don't have to charge the ac for the pulley to work.
I don't think you can bypass the compressor. Chrysler would have to build a model without ac and as far as I know they all have ac. When they do have an engine without ac they usually have an idler pulley to take the place of the compressor. Re-routing the belt runs the risk of turning the alternator or water pump in the wrong direction.
