Can I bypass ac compressor on a 2004 dodge ram 5.7 hemi?


If you are referring to running the serpentine belt without the compressor, you might be able to, but you may have an awful time doing it!
Understand that cutting the compressor out of the loop may not be possible, unless you take the compressor completely off the engine, because sometimes it is " in the way" of a replacement shorter belt.
A cloth tape measure used by a seamstress or in sewing is a really good way to determine how long the shorter replacement belt needs to be, when you wrap it around the remaining pulleys.
God bless your efforts.

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.

Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue


I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

Hallo i have a problem with my vw sharan 1.9tdi from 2002. When i activate the the heater in the cabin,and set the regulator to blow at the windshield, the blower is working okay ibut there is not coming...


It may be a problem with your ac compressor. Check first to see if there is something blocking the front vents.If there is then try cleaning it out. There are ac compressor bypass pulleys available at any parts store or online. You can also buy a new ac compressor. However I recommend you have someone else install the ac compressor unless your qualified. It will more than likely have freon in the lines.

Serp belt installation Can I install a short belt if I do not run the AC pump and how is it routed?


Yes you can run a shorter belt. You will have to measure how many inches you need to get the right size belt. The routing should be pretty much the same you just skip the AC pump and route the belt as usual. The auto parts store may carry the belt of you ask for a no-ac option when making your purchase.

New routing diagram for the drive belt on my 2004 Cherokee. new belt is 13 inchs shorter (this is to eliminate the squeek problem), my local garage is reluctant to advise me!


Click on the following Link. It has the two (2) Serpentine Belt Diagrams.

I believe the Mechanic is bypassing your AC Compressor.
When you look at both of the Belt Routes you can bypass the AC with the shorter belt.
In the first Diagram: the Belt would go from the Power Steering Pump, bypassing the AC and going directly to (over the top) of the Water Pump.
In the second Diagram: the Belt would go from the Tensioner, bypassing the AC and going directly to (under the bottom) of the Water Pump.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

What is easiest fix on a/c compressor or to bypass it and drive?


If it doesn't make any noise when AC is off, and your o.k. with that, just unplug the connector going to the compressor & it won't engage the clutch anymore.

Shorter serpentine belt on 2001 jetta tdi


Yes you can get a shorter belt and bypass the ac. It may be as simple as going to the parts store and tell them you have 2001 jetta no ac. Just keep the receipt.
You should also disconnect the a/c compressor connectors/wires/plugs also, try doing this before you bypass the ac first incase doing so gives you warning lights on the dash board.
Also know that the defrost setting uses the a/c so it will take longer to get the condensation off the inside of the window.
