There are several pulleys necessary for the A/C. The A/C clutch pulley on the AC compressor is one. If this is the one breaking, your compressor is not far behind. The resistance of the compressor is minimized by proper oil TYPE and proper quantity of oil and freon to keep the compressor bearings free. Now if you are talking about the tensioner pulley, both the AC clutch pulley and the tensioner can be too tight if the belt routing is wrong. On some engines the belt can be routed 2 ways. To save money, the belt could be looped to eliminate the AC, and another way to have a working AC. Could be the belt is installed wrong. There are different types of AC oils.

My belt is sqealing and i have been told maybe i should disconnect the ac as it may be do i do that

When the A/C is not being used, the A/C compressor pulley should be free wheeling. So disconnecting the A/C will not help. Pull the belt off and spin the A/C pulley by hand. If it turns freely, and no noise, the problem is elsewhere. Check the pulley on the alternator and the other pulleys. If all appear and sound okay, try a new belt.
If the squealing only happens when the A/C is used, it could be a bad compressor, but again, the pulley should be free wheeling when A/C is turned off. If it is not free wheeling, disconnecting won't make any difference-you will have to replace the compressor.

My 2000 alero makes a screeching sound when i turn on ac does anyone know what it could be?

Most probable cause is the belt slipping on the compressor pulley, either from being too loose or A/C compressor may be starting to lock up. The belt running your A/C compressor nromaly free spins on the pulley/bearing assy. when you engage the A/C the clutch assembly lock in against the pulley which engages the compressor. It is possible the the needed tension from your belt it too loose to spin the compressor when locked engaged or the compressor may be locking up. I would start by checking the belt tension if it has a manual adjustment and is not a serpentine belt with an auto tensioner.

How do I replace the altenator belt on a 1996 Nissan Maxima?

Just loosen up the BOLT in the alternator, the one that holds the bracket, and u can move/slide the ALTERNATOR assembly. If the A/C compressor belt is blocking the removal of belt, loosen up the compressor and slide it to free up the belt! Now u could replace the alternator belt!
Installing will be easier!

Ford f25 1991 the heater belt starts smoking when turn on. We do not use the air conditioner

I would take off the belt and check each pulley for free movement when the car is off. For example, if there is an air pump, it should turn freely. Or, if the alternator pulley is disconnected from the belt, it should turn relatively freely.

Squealing,I have new belts and alternator.

Squealing is associated with belt slippage. 1) ensure that the belt is tight - at the longest distance between two pulleys it should be possible to twist the belt by about 90 degrees only. 2) with the engine running check funder the hood or the free running of the pulleys. a) Ask a colleague to engage the power steering from lock to lock and see if the power steering pump pulley does not cause slippage. b) set the air con to low and watch what happens when the compressor pump solenoid engages. If the belt begins to slip on the air con compressor pulley it is likely that the compressor is beginning to fail by seizing up. In that event preserve the belt simply switch the air con off and pray for cooler weather until the compressor can be overhauled.

Belt tensioner vibrates severly only when a/c on

That is what it sounds like. Try to take off the belt and see how free the compressor turns.

I have a 2000 plymouth voyager mini van v6 3.3 l . the air compressor locked up broke belt. i am looking for a diagram to replace belt. also can i bypass the compressor by using a belt for a model that...

There should be a diagram under the hood. If not go to your local auto parts house and ask for them to help. They will. Yes you can bypass the AC compressor by getting a belt for a model with out air but you may or may not have to modify the pullys by adding a idler pully if the set up will allow. I would recomend calling a chrysler dealer and asking them they should be able to tell you and it is free. You can't beat free
